Re: [Histonet] Cutting research blocks from home?

i would be very cautious in starting this program...numerous liabilities  
could follow, the tracking of these materials, are you zoned at your home  for 
such things, as mentioned bsl-2 or even bsl-3 required environment, disposal  of 
material (medical waste), etc etc. i'm in my own business and only wish you  
the best but we do live in a very litigious society..tom

I would look  into the institutions from who(m?) you're getting the
specimens.  They  might not let anyone take the tissue off of the
facility grounds.   With a university lab, we can't even move tissue to
another lab without  filling out forms.  Also, human tissue is BSL-2,
at least,  right?

If trees could scream, would we be so cavalier  about cutting them
down? We might, if they screamed all the time, for no  good  reason.
