[Histonet] Lab assistants

Good Morning,   We are having a debate about what a Lab assistant can and can not do in the State of Florida.  So, those of you in Florida please weigh in.  Can they make alcohol  dilutions and use those alcohols to:

1)      Change an automatic stainer

2)      Change the tissue processor

What about recycling said alcohols?   Are they allowed to pour formalin into the processor wells? Can they fill small bottles with formalin to be used by doctor's offices?  The list could go on and on... but I will stop here.

Thanks so much for any insight into this!
