In our lab, we use the bubbles as therapy..... draw pictures, practice
writing in foreign languages, etc, then "erase" them with the brush we used
for our therapy : )

I always keep a camel hair brush by my waterbath and when I see bubbles
forming on the bottom I use the brush to loosen the bubbles and then wipe
the surface of the waterbath with a kimwipe.  I have seen more bubbles form
with distilled water than tap water.  They are worse after microwaving the
distilled water or after the DI tanks are changed.    Sarah

I have been working in histopathology for about sixteen years and now a very
annoying problem has cropped up. We are getting bubbles floating up to the
sections in the floatation baths. They are not big bubbles that are usually
after we change the distilled water. For those we simply tap on the bath and
they are easily removed. These are very tiny and cover the underside of the
whole section.
Any ideas of how they can be prevented from forming or removed?
Thanks for your help
