[Histonet] Wear gloves when handling / cutting paraffin blocks.

We wear gloves we have to sterile section blocks for DNA/RNA extraction.
Keeps the slides free from contamination if we are placing sections on
slides, otherwise we are sticking them in a vial. All equipment associated
with the sterile sectioning is cleaned between each block (block holder,
blade holder, forceps etc) and gloves are changed.

Dear All,
I am looking some kind of references out there that addresses that it is
not a requirement to wear gloves when handling / cutting paraffin blocks.
Any help would be greatly appreciated
Thank in advance,
