Hi Stacey,

My understanding is that this is N/A unless you are processing in your
microwave, or using other "dangerous" stuff.  My lab is considering this not
applicable because we only use the microwave to heat water, and a few
stains.  We don't heat Bouins, or any other fixative, dehydrant or clearing
agents.  I can let you know how if this is acceptable after our inspection
that could be any time from now until May.

I am curious to know how labs have responding to the CAP Question  ANT.29430
which asks "Are microwave devices properly vented?". Have the labs continued
to utilized their regular "kitchen model" microwaves and applied duct work
to them to be vented out of the building? Please comment.

Thank you,
