  How nice to read your note. I spent many good years in Ontario (Ontario
  Vet College - Guelph) operating one of the first EM facilities outside
  of Toronto. Great years, those early '60's! I  recycled OsO4, Ag, etc.
  as standard practice in our research labs. Today, I believe it is next
  to impossible to justify the setup/time/cost especially for any lab
  doing clinical/diagnostic work. Still, I believe we both had a greater
  appreciation/knowledge for the science of biology/chemistry - possibly
  the environment and certainly economics of those times.  Bob Weimer
