Robert Skinner wrote a great article for Histo-Logic May 2003, about a
flammable (100 mL of isopentane ($2)) that exploded in a freezer, causing
hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of damage. Incredible photos of the
damage. I hope this link works.

Subject: [Histonet] Flammable storage

How does everyone store any reagents that need refrigeration that are also
flammable? We have always just stored them in the routine histology
refrigerator.  I have never had this concern come up before and the charge
tech of toxicology is now questioning this type of storage.  Any guidance on
this would be greatly appreciated!!

Thanks, as always fellow histonetters, the best group in the world!!
