Does anybody know what precautions need to be taken when performing a  
Mercury Orange Stain for protein thiols? A friend of mine in another  
lab was asked to do this stain. The stain powder does have mercury in  
it and the MSDS calls for face masks/eye protection and gloves. Has  
anybody done this stain?
