[Histonet] Proper Respirator for Formalin and Organic Solvents


Greetings Histonetters,
We are investigating different respirators for dumping tissues and changing
processors.  We use NBF and real xylene.  What are other hospital labs
using?  Do you have to be fit-tested yearly?  Are you following hosp.
respiratory policy or your own?  Sorry for all the questions, but I am on a
fact-finding mission.

Thanks, Renee
