What method are you using? Making your own coated tubes, UCSF or MD Anderson. Are you purchasing coated tubes? Once the tube is coated, dried (using hood) and filled w dH2O, there should be no odor. Always work w/ collodion under the hood. Ethyl ether is main component. Once in cassette and processed, there should not be odor.

Subject: [Histonet] Collodian bag for cell blocks

Hi All
Was wondering if anyone is using the Collodian bag for cell blocks.  We just got it and have been using it 'works great' but all the techs are complaining of the smell.. Our ventilation has been looked at and has passed however the smell still lingers in the room.  Any suggestions??
