RE: [Histonet] DAB disposal

From:"DiCarlo, Margaret"


When I worked in Pathology we neutralized the DAB waste container by adding
12-15 ml. of 30% Hydrogen Peroxide and letting it sit for 24 hours and then
drain the liquid down the drain and put the jell0-like material into a jug
for waste.

I always thought addition of bleach neutralises DAB. 
Please correct me if I am wrong.

Hello All:
How is everyone disposing of their waste DAB from their automated IHC
stainers?  Is there a solution to neutralize DAB?  Has anyone encountered
defending their method of disposition to a CAP inspector?  Thanks for any
and all replies, in advance.
