[Histonet] osmium and mineral oil

From:"Andrew Kennedy"

With regards to using different oils for mopping up Osmium spills, our EM
lab use full cream milk powder - it doesn't go rancid and since they only
handle small amounts of osmium a small spill can be absorbed by the milk
powder and neutralized by the cream content. Simply use in excess and sweep
it up with a dustpan and broom for appropriate disposal.
