In our lab pregnant people do no coverslipping or other procedures which
would put them in contact with xylene or its fumes.

Does anybody has complains of preagnant technicians with headaches because
of the smell of reagents such as xylol?
What are the precautions you have with preagnancy? Our mounting and staining
are mannual procedures but we do have one exaustor for fumes that covers the
staining battery. My worry is that we don4t use coverslippers, instead we
use a kind of automotive coating (yeah... I know... bad bad bad...).
Does somebody has any idea to substitute it without using coverslippers?

Thanks again
