I also have a ventana immunostainer. I collect the DAB and ABC in 1 liter bottles once full I give them to hazardous waste for disposal.

    I have a Ventana ES immuno stainer and use DAB as my detection kit.  How
are Labs disposing of the DAB waste?  I have literature on a peristolic pump
and filter, but this seems expensive at $1700 for the pump and $300 for the
filter.  Also, my safety director will not let us neutralize anything,
including formalin.  He states that our facility is not licensed to
neutralize.  All our waste is shipped out.....this can be quite expensive.
