[Histonet] Formalin and Xylene Free Histology - Any Info about Glyo Fixx

From:"McKnight, Tanisha"

Hello Again:
I am looking into Microwave processing and using Glyo Fixx as the fixative.
I am starting a histology lab, pretty much from scratch, but I have very
little experience in using Formalin and Xylene alternatives. The question I
have concerning the Glyo Fixx is whether or not I will need to use the same
safety precautions we use when grossing/handling specimens fixed in
formalin. Does it still need to be grossed under a hood? Are the ventilation
requirements different. 
If anyone here is using this, can you tell me how you handle this.
