Re: [BULK] - [Histonet] DEZENKERIZE USING SAKURA DRS STAINER

From:

Reminder to everyone who is dezenkerizing (lugolizing) on the stainers -
when you get ready to dump this iodine station, it cannot go down the sink.
It now contains mercuric salts, so must be collected as mercury waste. (As
should the next couple of containers of reagents, carry-over on the slides.)

Ways to get around this:
1. Dezenkerize (lugolize) by hand, then add the slide to the stainer.
2. Switch over to a zinc fixative.
