Hi All,

Does anyone know where we could get the original grey antibody storage racks used to store antibodies in the refrigerator?  We are using ventana antibodies. 
Thanks in advance.

I am posting to ask for any information or direction this group may be able to give (or leads for contacts) concerning the possibility of donations to a high school science/ histology laboratory.

I am a high school teacher (Conrad Weiser HS, Robesonia, PA) and Cell/ Molecular Biology PhD student (Univ. of the Sciences, Philadelphia, PA).  I developed a histology laboratory this year in my high school and it has taken off!  The students are extremely interested in learning and experimenting utilizing histological technique.  I am holding a summer program opening the lab for students to work.  Initially I thought I would have 5 to 10 students that would want to work over the summer; 28 students are attending.  It is inspiring to see such enthusiasm!  With this in mind, I would like to try to accumulate some additional equipment/ supplies.  If you know of any laboratories that are closing/ shutting down/ or equipment/supplies that are not being utilized and there is a possibility of donating these items to a public high school please email me off list (a_schade at conradweiser.org<mailto:a_schade at conradweiser.org>).  We are looking for any histology related equipment and supplies (especially a tissue processor- we are manually processing at this point); as well as any basic laboratory equipment/ supplies (glassware, micropipettes, heating mantles, etc.)

Thank you for your time.  I love reading the informative posts on this listserv!
Have a great summer,
Adelle Schade

Recently we were told that we could no longer use our Bio-med department for doing decontamination of our instruments and that the techs would be given an in-service to learn how to do them.  I remember this process as long and messy.  The Ventana rep has explained to the staff as being approx. 5 hours and not difficult to do.  I remember it differently so I'd like to see what other Ventana users are doing with this process.

Here are my questions:

Are you currently using in house Bio-engineering to do your quarterly cleanings?

Do you pay Ventana to come in and do it?

Are you having technical staff do it on off hours?  Then give them time off another day?

How extensive of a decontamination do you do?  (ex - cleaning filters, extra DI rinses, pH testing of containers to be sure all cleaning reagents have been removed, forced air drying of bulk containers -

Have you had problems with air pressure error codes or do you increase the pressure to handle the increased fluid flow?

Have you ever had overflow problems that damaged the instrument?

How many instruments do you have?

These are the basic questions, but if anyone has any further information or ideas - I would appreciate hearing them.
