RE: Safety measures and guidelines

From:"LaFriniere, Mike"

Hi Debbie,
I work with several Alzheimer brains yearly fresh and fixed and not sure
what safety measures you are seeking information on. Other than routine
formaldehyde exposure safety measures while sectioning through the fixed
brain is all I would be concerned with. Currently my experience, and
information with Alzheimers disease process does not demonstrate evidence
that this is at all an infectious process, if this is your concern.

Can anyone tell what safety measures and guidelines you use with already
fixed tissue, in particular Alzheimer's Diseased tissue?
