silver nitrate for marking margins

From:Alex Bolivar <>

<html><DIV>Hello all!</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>I was wondering if anyone out there was using silver nitrate to mark the margins of gross specimens. We are currently using india ink and other tissue marking dyes, but would like to try silver nitrate. If anyone is using it, what concentration do you use, and do you have any concerns related to toxicity. Also, does it make a mess on cutting boards, instruments and things? </DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Thanx in advance!</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Alex Bolivar</DIV> <DIV>University of Alberta Hospital</DIV> <DIV>Edmonton, Alberta</DIV> <DIV>Canada </DIV><br clear=all><hr>Get Your Private, Free E-mail from MSN Hotmail at <a href=""></a>.<br></p></html>
