In the good old days of Bunsen burners we used to fry the end of the
forceps; nothing survived that and if it did it was readily identifiable.
Alas the Bunsen burner has been consigned to the politically incorrect as
the 'Scientists' of today would incinerate themselves whilst the
'Technicians' of yesterday didn't (well not often).

The sad demise of mercury, lead, Bunsen burners, formalin, anything too hot,
too cold, too explosive, too poisonous, etc. Having your tea in the Lab next
to the specimens and processing TB specimens 'on the bench'.

Would Histology have the techniques and stains it now has if harmful
chemicals had not been experimented with? Will anything new be discovered by
the HistoTech if all that we can use is 'safe' chemicals and procedures? I
don't see the kids fiddling with things like we use to, no explosions, no
fires and no injuries. Am I just an old reactionary waiting to be put out to
pasture and ruminate on what was?

Hi Netters,
We are trying to minimize possible embedding contaminations. What are other
people doing to prevent contamination due to forceps etc. 
Thanks in advanceSheila Adey HT MLTPort Huron HospitalMichigan
