Regarding previous postings on this matter-I wonder if the inspectors will
push for glove use because they observe microtomy being done around and with
the close use of Decal/KOH and other acidic, or toxic chemicals etc.
Or observing microtomy being closely tied with coverslipping/stainers with
possible cumulative exposure to xylenes and other potential toxic or
sensitizing chemicals. Maybe they will assume any neural/ tissue etc could
possibly contain CJD. Or possibly they think xylene carryover, formalin
chemicals in paraffin/tissue blocks may effect us transdermally?? Any
thoughts on this?
