Subject: Plastic containers for formalin-fixed tissues
Does anyone have any experience with clear plastic contains such as the ones found on the following website: www.sho-me.com?
I contacted the company about using the small containers to store formalin-fixed tissues but they were unable to tell me if the plastic could stand up to 10% formalin. (One of our techs has extremely small hands and cannot open the traditional opaque plastic contains with yellow lids that are specifically designed for this use.)
Thanks in advance,
