Re: uranyl nitrate
|From:||Vinnie Della Speranza |
I do not claim to be an expert on this but I do not believe that this
material requires radiation precautions. However, it is considered to be a
highly toxic compound and a potential carcinogen (Merck Index) which is the
concern when working with it. Your safety people should be able to determine
that this material does not require radiation precautions.

I need some help with a safety issue concerning 1% aqueous
uranyl nitrate used in a Steiner stain. Does any one have any
documentation from any regulatory agency on it's safety and use in the
Our safety people want to post radiation signs all over the
place and send everyone to radiation safety training.
Thanks in advance.
