I was just thinking of that gizmo, but couldn't remember its name. They
are also available for rent so that one could do their needed volume
without having to keep such a thing around. Our intitution would be a
prime candidate for the renting option. Plus, they look like they would
be "fun" to see work!

Norm, if someone is really serious about destroying their slides, they
could check out the SlydeEater. I haven't seen it for real but it
appears to do an impressive job!

Dear Histonetters,
I think everyone on the Histonet would like to hear about all the
creative, cost effective, and HIPPA-compliant ways labs can dispose of
slides and blocks that have exceeded their retention limits.  
Does anyone use an outside company that disposes of glass slides and/or
paraffin blocks, or is there equipment to be rented/purchased that would
provide a solution to everyone's slide and block disposal challenge?
We would all like to hear of your innovative or not so innovative
solutions to this challenge.
Thank you in advance for your solutions.
Norm Burnham
