RE: [Histonet] microwave with ventilation capabilities/vendors welcome

From:"Vinnie Della Speranza"

Greg's interpretation is correct. if you are not heating solutions that will lead to hazardous vapors, you have met the standard.

I answered this question as "N/A" (not applicable) as the reagents we use in
the microwave are only "non-hazardous" (e.g. aqueous solutions, most
biological stains, no pathogens or carcinogens.  More specifically we are
not processing any tissues or using common tissue processing agents.  See
the comment section for this CAP question.  Does this seem to be an
appropriate interpretation of the intent of this question?  Thanks, Greg

            We are looking for a new microwave that can be ventilated to
meet the new CAP question ANP.29430.  We are using microwave outside of a
hood and have existing ventilation to hook it in to.
