Welcome to the "Histonet" mailing list


Welcome to the Histonet@lists.utsouthwestern.edu mailing list! Welcome
to HISTONET. This is an electronic mailing list for the exchange of
information pertaining to histotechnology and related fields. WHAT ARE
THE RULES? You may post any questions you wish pertaining to
histology, pathology, in-situ hybridization, immunohistochemistry etc.
Equipment and reagent evaluations, laboratory management issues,
government regulations, and job opportunities are all appropriate
topics. The University asks that we restrict the use of its hardware
and software to business purposes only (occasional jokes do slip
through but PLEASE use restraint). Vendors and those with commercial
interests in histology products are welcome contributors however, we
ask that blatant advertisements be avoided at all times. It is fine to
refer to product that your company produces if it is pertinent to a
topic being discussed on the list. Unsolicited advertisements are
poorly tolerated by the members and you will likely receive a number
of negative comments if you overstep the boundaries. Please contact
Linda Margraf at LMargraf@childmed.dallas.tx.us if you are not sure
about the appropriateness if a message you wish to post.
