Hi All,

Just wondering how most labs deal with disposing of their tissue specimens that have been fixed in formalin.  We have to pour off
the formalin to separate the tissue so that it can be disposed of in red bag garbage.  This is such a time consuming and dirty job.
Adequate ventilation is also a problem.  Does anyone out there have a different method?
