RE: [Histonet] Osmium Tetroxide Protocol and mineral oil?
You are right , I replied to Tim but realise that I forgot to send to the

I had always used the corn oil , but the last time it was rancid and
by boss didn't like the smell. He said the mineral oil would be ok
though I was uneasy , but as the rat had been put under we
Tim is right , mineral oil will not work at all. Corn oil is
recommended. In one of the web sites he mentioned, there is a
mention of using sodium bisulfite for decontamination. Any one
ever use that?
