Hi Valerie,
    When I started in Histo in 90' everybody used the alcohol burners...Open flame concern became a concerned and the separate forcep warmers were purchase because the old embedding centers did not have the nice warmers like the new ones do. The last place I worked at had an old embedding center when I started but we weren't allowed open flames. Fortunately, we found an unused Bacteria Incinerator that Micro. wasn't using and used that until that embedding center died. That worked great!

Subject: [Histonet] Bunsen Burner

Hi all..

We are having a discussion/ disagreement in our department as far as whether using a bunsen burner at the embedding center is against fire codes.

What is the consensus??
