We use forceps warmers, find them in any Histology catalog (like Fisher Scientific or Scientific Products/Allegiance).

Subject: [Histonet] Flame substitute for embedding

Hello Histoland!!

We have just been told  we are no longer allowed to use alcohol burners while embedding and we are to find a safer substitute, something to do with no liking an open flame in the lab.  Other than incinerators or 6 pairs of forceps at each centre, we've run out of ideas so we are asking all you experts out there what your current practice is.. oh.. this change needs to be done by this Friday!!
