"Contrary to my comments", I am well aware that cryostats cannot be
decontaminted 100%, and was referring recent DISCUSSIONS on that subject,
of which Tim Morken made the most profound statements.   I think the proper
terminology could be "MINIMIZE RISK" by cleaning.  Because one cannot
guarantee or totally decontaminate the cabinet (just cutting one specimen
puts it back in contaminated mode).  
To give you an example and a choice,  A "do I cry, curse or throw up
project?" - would you do frozen sections a used tampon??? for a research
project???  Well, I was asked, and NOT for a million bucks!  Grossed out a
dept head, me and made the researcher mad!  He was told to access his own
