Amy Self asks: >>How many of you have ventilated storage cabinets for
storage of specimens?<<

I'm supposing that by "specimens" you mean surgical specimens stored
in formalin in closed containers.

I've worked in a lot of pathology services in my life, and I think
I've never seen such a thing. Most services keep wet tissue for from
two to four weeks.

Is some regulatory agency going to require it?
