I would still use nitril gloves fir that. Nitril may be a little more expensive but for our department it's the only way to go if safety is practiced. Also I would recommend that you look at the Msds of all reagents you work with. Your department should gave a book. While we are on the subject all should be familiar with the chemicals we work with by looking at the Msds and the protocols which should include proper PPE. Our field of study is a dangerous field. We not only deal with biohazards of fresh tissue blood included we gave mass amounts of chemicals       Be safe out there. And Claire I hope you feel better:)

I gross (skin only) under a fume hood but the gloves still come in contact with formalin naturally. I am also (OK, mostly) interested in the health effects involving formalin, Propar, and the alcohols as they pertain to the liver. (No guys, I mean REAGENT alcohols, not the ingestable kind.) :)
