After reading few of the messages sent about the isopentane, I have to say
that I'm very concern. We have a deep freezer in our lab in which, half of
it , contains containers fill with isopentane. Specimens embedded in OCT,
are stored in vials containing isopentane, in different levels. I told my
supervisor about my concerns (specially after viewing the damage done in
Arkansas lab), saying that we should change our storage habit. She agreed
and suggest, decanting the isopentane into a metal container, leaving the
specimen wrapped in aluminium foil in a cryovial (at -80C). Then dispose
the isopentane by flushing it down the drain with running warm water. Does
it seems to you, the right way to do it ?? How about the environment ??
A very concern lab tech .
