Re: [Histonet] storing paraformaldehyde under inert gas

From:Geoff McAuliffe

original container, tightly closed. I suppose you could buy a glove box, 
a closed chamber with gloves and inlet and outlet valves and use it to 
close the paraform. jar with nitrogen in the chamber. Seems like a lot 
of trouble ESPECIALLY since, if the lid is not 100% leak proof, you are 
wasting your time and money.
