RE: [Histonet] NOW Alcohol / Xylene storage in flammable storage cabinet

From:"Deltour, Douglas D. (HM2)"

This brings up a question! I have recently been wondering how many of you
store Alcohol and Xylene in the same flam cabinet? I have been to multiple
facilities which have multiple answers. If it is not "legal" then where can
I find this in writing? Thanks

  I cannot think of any incompatibility. The alcoholic eosins are neither
incompatible with pure ethanol nor with xylene.
  Hematoxylin is not flammable so it would be an "overkill" but as long as
you can use the space I do not see why not.
  Hope this will help you.

Hello all -

We are doing some remodeling in our laboratory and losing some storage
space where we currently store our hematoxylin and eosin. However, we are
gaining a new flammable storage cabinet.

Does anyone know of any incompatibility issues with storing Richard Allan
Hematoxylin 2, Lerner Eosin-Y (alcoholic), ethyl alcohols (95% and
absolute), and xylene together in a flammable storage cabinet?

Thank you for any thoughts.
