		Ya'll have been so helpful in the past...and I am ever so
thankful. Now I 
		have a new set of questions.

		I have tried a couple of air monitoring systems, but haven't
found one that 
		was easy to use AND doesn't cost an small fortune.  Would
you please take a 
		few minutes and answer my questions?  Just send your reply
back to me and if 
		anyone is interested, I'll post a summary on the Histonet.

		What kind of air monitoring system do you use?  Badges from
Kem Med How long? 8 hour
		How frequently? once a year
		Do you have to report your findings (+ or -), or do you just
keep them
		   on file? keep them on file
		Do you monitor for organic vapors? alcohol?no  xylene? yes
formaldehyde? yes
		Did you choose the system or did someone choose it for you?
I did
		Will you continue to use this system? yes 
		If you are staying with this system is it because it is easy
to use? yes 
		   or is it reasonably priced? yes 

		Thank you very much,

		Histologically yours,
