Isopentane Baths

From:"Weems, Joyce"

Is there a danger of HIV or Hepatitis C contamination when using an
isopentane bath (Histobath) for freezing frozen sections? Is HIV preserved
or killed at -70?

I want to a Histobath in order to delete the spray freezes - but my
pathologists have this question. TIA!
