Re: [Histonet] Waste on Benchmark XT

From:Rene J Buesa

The only thing I do not understand about your posting is the "testing part". What test are you writing about? Testing how hazardous the waste is?
If a waste is hazardous, it is hazardous and cannot be be dumped down the drain. As a matter of fact no chemical or biological waste can be disposed that way.
Some sales rep are willing to say anything in order to not jeopardize a sale.
You will have to dispose your waste in the same way as you dispose of formalin, which I imagine you dispose through a waste management company, no?

Hello Histoland,


We have a Benchmark XT.  The sales rep told us it was ok to dump the
waste down the drain.  THEN we were told that the waste is hazardous and
actually causes mutant changes in lab animals.  (wow, I could turn into
Rogue or Storm! My luck, I'd be Beast or Toad . . . . .)


Anyway, can I get some feedback from you guys about how you dispose of
the waste from the Benchmark XT?  We had someone here to test it, but
we're still waiting for results.
