[Histonet] BL2 safety precautions in histo

From:"Judith L. Williams"

Hi to all histonetters-  what are the current standards for BL2 precautions in the la. I am particularly interested in microtomes - for paraffin embedded sectioning of prion infected tissue-
do you have to decon the machine after usage?
do you have a microtome designated only for that and also decon it?
do you have a special room for contaminated specimens?
how do you store the blocks?

any help/advice greatly appreciated!
