to carry a very safe.  Just make a point to stay away from all the
sterile cloth covered areas in the OR, and the surgeons seem quite

another question today. :)
has anyone had experience taking clinical samples from the OR? I want to

take a liquid nitrogen container into the OR to collect samples so that
are frozen quickly and of the best quality. What kind of containers are
for this, what is the safests container for liquid nitrogen? I was
of a long neck spherical dewar flask from pope scientific (vwr#
but any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
thanks all,
Jason Madore
