Re: [Histonet] formalin levels and exhaust systems

From:Rene J Buesa

I bought two large counter-top fume extraction hoods (from Fisher) to be used in the cassetting area. They worked very well and eliminated formalin fumes. We also had a smaller one for coverslipping in the frozen section area.
  We always found them convenient with the advantage that you can place them were needed.
  Hope this will help!

We are looking into a benchtop exhaust system to absorb and filter
formalin fumes at two of our grossing stations. Has anyone ever used
the benchtop systems (such as ones by companies such as Mopec or
Thermoshandon)? What kind of results did you have with these formalin
filtering systems.
