Hi! Our lab is using xylene substitute (Clear Rite 3), but we recently purchased an automated coverslipper and would prefer to keep a small quanity (32 ounces) of xylene on hand for cleaning the machine and such. Does anyone know of any regulation with keeping such a small quanity. Are we required to monitor xylene fumes? Are we required to track disposal, ect? I purchased this amount at the local hardware store. 
Thank you,
