Hello all,
We changed vendors recently, and are now using Thermo's Formal Fix in 
plastic containers with red spigots.
Does anyone in histoland have suggestions/advice for opening the plastic 
spout before screwing the spigot on?
Everything we've tried just doesn't seem safe to get these damn containers 
open!  Scalpels are working the best so far, but I'm afraid I'll seriously 
cut my fingers/hand when I'm pushing the blade into the rough plastic.  We 
don't have anything else with a tip sharp enough to pierce the plastic---so 
we tried hitting a metal handle with a mallot, but the formalin splashes 
something awful when we do get through the container.
Anything you could suggest would be appreciated!
Thanks so much!
