For anyone who uses the Thermo HM525 NX cryostat, how do you clean out the shavings that fall behind the stage? I know you can remove some of the pieces to try to clean out by hand but some of our staff do no feel comfortable with sticking their hands down there with the wires. We use a small vacuum cleaner to suck the shavings out at our satellite lab but we only do frozen on skins out there and the issue at hand with using a vacuum at our hospital setting is that we cut lung tissue on it and don't want to risk the potential chance of using a vacuum to suck up TB or any other lung diseases. We were wondering if there was just a special filter we could use? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
