    This sounds like a bit of a waste of our rain forests to me but have you
ever considered photocopying the requisitions? The copies would doubtless be
safe to handle.
    In our lab so we can have quick access to the requisitions without fumbling
with paperwork, we scan all our requisitions. The doctors can pull them up on
their screens when they are reviewing their cases and accessing the requisitions
is much easier.
