RE: [Histonet] Re: DMSO

From:"Smith, Allen"

Although pure dimethylsulfoxide is only slightly toxic (less toxic than
rubbing alcohol), DMSO carries anything dissolved in it through most gloves
and through skin.  If the DMSO contains anything you wouldn't want to eat,
wear butyl rubber gloves when handling it.

Whoops, broke a rule of mine, abbreviation DMSO is Dimethyl sulfoxide, and
you can order it from any chemical supplier, it is a solvent commonly used
in laboratories. Follow Material Safety Data Sheet instructions on handling
this product.
