Dear Jonathan, 

We don't use anymore those gels, but put the eggs next to a glass microscope slide, in a dry petri dish, taking away all the water. The eggs are maintained by the slide while you injcet them. After injection you just have to rinse with a wash bottle filled with egg water and collect the eggs in a new, clean petri dish. 

Good luck!
