Re: [Histonet] Grossing Stations

From:Robert Chiovetti

Kathy,Are you smelling formalin in the lab?  If so, check the condition of the filter, or check when the last time the filter was changed.  The filters in the Mopec self-contained ventilation systems contain potassium iodide to trap formalin vapors.  Maybe the filter is exhausted.Just a thought...Bob Robert (Bob) Chiovetti, Ph.D.Southwest Precision InstrumentsArizona's Microscopy Resource132 North Elster DriveTucson, AZ 85710-3212Tel./Fax 520-546-4986www.swpinet.comMember, Arizona Small Business Association( Original Message ----From: Kathy Gorham To: Temple Nancy ; histonet@lists.utsouthwestern.eduSent: Thursday, February 8, 2007 5:13:01 PMSubject: Re: [Histonet] Grossing StationsWe have a 600 Mopec grossing station also but we are having some problem with the ventilation.

Thecompany is great to work with. The stations can be built to suit yourneeds. We have one, I believe it is the 600, that is height adjustable.The other unit is stationary. Ventilation works well on both.

Can any of you recommend the grossing stations that youwould prefer.  We would like the grossing station to last for areasonable amount of time, be sturdy in construction, offer options thatcan be added later but also be user friendly with enough shelf space andwork area. Most importantly the ventilation must be of high quality.  Wehave several companies that we are looking at but would like to get anidea of what most folks are using and if you are happy with the units ornot.  If you could also tell us what features you liked.   Thank you in advance,Pat Karlisch=0ASupervisor, Histology, Pathology and Laboratory Medicine Penn StateMilton S.
