[Histonet] anti static spray?

we bought anti-static mats that are grounded and placed underneath the microtomes. This helped a lot, although we do have an anti-static brush and spray that we use in extreme circumstances when the air handlers go down.

I don't have the information to hand just now, but if you are ineterested I can get it to you on Monday

I have this problem a lot. I have static so bad literally blue sparks fly from my finger tips. I'm scared I'm going to blow up something one day and I walk around terrified to open doors. Anyway, in order to remedy my problem during sectioning I use a lot of hand lotion and get some bounce dryer sheets and run over my cloths and hair This usually works.
