Is decal solution being stored in any of those cabinets or drawers?  Some 
techs will have a container that they keep near their microtomes for 
surface decal.

[Histonet] Rusting in Pathology Department

Here is a question I don't believe I ever seen discussed here before. Does 
anyone else have significant rusting issues in their Histology 
Departments?  Cabinet hinges, metal outlet plates, printers, etc. are 
rusting in our department, especially around the microtome areas.  Please 
let me know if you are having any of these issues, or can think of any 
reason for this.  We had a printer in the lab that the whole interior 
rusted out.  This is not minor rusting that I could contribute to water 
bath  humidity.
