Do you have some data or this is purely theoretical? I created a package to help detect it before it is sequenced and avoid having problems when sequencing in multiple batches: experDesign . If you want to remove it probably limma::removeBatchEffect works, but there might be more specific methods.

The models were fitted with the lme4 R package102. Strong associations were observed between the first four PCs and slide position and sample plate (Supplementary Fig. 1f, g). M values were thus corrected for these two batch effects using the ComBat function, from the sva R package-

Well it tells you they used sva::combat. You can contact the authors and ask for the exact script they used.
