DPX New risk statements.

From:"Mehew David (RJF) Burtonh-tr"

Has anyone who uses DPX as a mounting medium noticed that on new bottles and
the accompanying hazard data sheets there are two new risk statements?
Dibutyl phthalate (the plasticiser used) now carries warnings that state -
may cause harm to the unborn child and possible risk of impaired fertility
(R61 and R62 in the European system).
Does anyone know whether the standard procedures used when mounting (gloves,
extraction etc) are sufficient to remove any risk?
Should we stop using it?
Is there a suitable safe(r) alternative?
