 I suggest having your bio-med or engineering department check the
generator exhaust belts that power the ventilation to see if they have
worn, slipped or have broken...

Subject: [Histonet] FORMALDEHYDE

Good Morning Histo Land, I was just informed that on my last test sample
for formaldehyde vapors was very high.  Right now I have to wear a
respirator while grossing and assisting grossing.  We are looking at why
the Mopec grossing station is not working in fact we have not had really
good results since we put it in.  I'm wondering if anyone else is having
the same problem or know of a better solution.  Our grossing station is
the one that is self contained with filters. Also is anyone using with
good result a formalin substitute? If so which one? 
Thanks and Have a great day,

Kathy Gorham, H.T.
