  Does anybody have any data or know of any standard procedures of any
precautions that need to be taken with having a pregnant histotech in the
lab?  Specifically, does anybody know if D'limonene (citrus odor xylene
substitute)is dangerous for a pregnant person to be inhaling?  I have
contacted the manufacturer of Americlear and basically they don't have any
data on toxicity other than through skin contact which can be avoided by
wearing nitrile gloves and a labcoat.
