Re: Throwing away Slides with Tissue

From:Roger Moretz


I don't know about regulations.  I know that the
decisioon here has been to consider slides with tissue
to be biohazard waste.  I haven't seen any
documentation on this and frankly don't see any reason
to consider slides with tissue as biohazard waste.  At
this point it has been fixed, processed, stained, etc,
etc.  Of course someone is going to throw the prion
diseases at me.  So, not from knowledge, just current
practice and some personal observations.
