Cutting is one thing such as like control slides, but staining that’s a whole different thing, you will have chemical waste that needs to be disposed of properly.  You will need appropriate ventilation, etc.   Correct me if I am wrong but I don’t think you could be performing any clinical work, it would have to be research.  Even though you might be only one person I still think you are responsible for all applicable OSHA guidelines.  

Just my two cents.

Has  anyone heard of people cutting and staining slides out of your garage or some kind of similar set up, like picking up overflow from different companies /labs? I overheard a conversation about someone doing this in their retirement. Labs send them the block and all they do is cut and do HE stain and return both and bill? What kinds of regulations would that entail? I don't know if that could be true. Maybe for research facilities?
