I am interested to know if everyone is still marking the "Date received"
and/or "Date opened" on each reagent and if this is necessary according
to regulations?  I had heard at a workshop that if the expiration date
is on the container, this was not a necessity!!  I am rewriting some
procedures and was hoping I could change this!!  Thanks ahead of time
for any helpful explanations!!
