Mats are great if you don't have someone in your lab that has a latex

      We have had similar problems and have had complaints lodged by other
     departments who have to travel our hallways...the paraffin gets
     tracked outside the lab and makes for a skating rink for all
     passersby.  We have gone to Tacky Mats which we place at every cutting
     and embedding station as well as near the exits.  It has made a HUGE
     difference for us. We also have our housekeeping staff strip our
     floors on a regular basis to remove even more of the paraffin debris.
     The mats can be purchased from Fisher Scientific. If you need more
     info just drop me an e-mail.  Hope this helps...:)

Would anyone have a solution to slippery floors?  Our housekeeping
department is no longer polishing our department floors
hoping this will eliminate the problem, but so far no change.  We have tried
to use mats,  but they are also a
safety hazard and difficult to clean.  I am interested in any products you
may have on your floors or any recommendations
for a product to remove the build up of wax particles often present in a
Histology lab.
