You can also leave the glass plate with the fixed gel on the bench or
in a fume hood overnight.  This is what I did because after the
sequencing run, it was already quite late in the day.  Another
method, is to put the glass plate in a warming oven set to about 80 C
for about 2 hours.  Good Luck!!  Rick.
