We still use it but are in the process of evaluating alternatives in order to phase it out. So far it looks like B-plus is winning.

Subject: [Histonet] Poll on B5

Hello all. 
I was asked by our director to try to come up with a list of places that
do still use and do not still use B5. We are working hard on trying to
get to be a mercury free facility and other than the B5 we use for bone
marrows we are mercury free. So, if you all could be so kind as to send
me a response that would be much appreciated. I would like to know what
you currently use, if you used B5 in the past or if you are currently
using B5 now, and hospital name. I would absolutely appreciate any and
all comments and help you all can provide. Thank you!
