Re: Concerned about working with carcinogens
Instead of working with Xylene , we substitute Clear-Rite. I'm told
that Xylene clears more quickly so I am careful not to rush the
times,but we get good results.
The Clear-Rite is a mixture of alphatic hydrocarbons. It
has a health hazard index of 1 ( slightly hazarous). I still wear
gloves and use it in the fume hood. Xylene has a health hazard
index of 2 ( moderate hazard).
The supplier , if your interested , is :
Somagen Diagnostics Inc.
Edmonton , Alberta
The manufacturer is Richard-allan Scienific
Kalamazoo , MI
Hope this is helpful , Margaret
