Precaution while using Microscope
Most embedding resins may cause dermatitis. 1 When preparing the mixtures and during embedding procedures, ALWAYS use disposable gloves. 2 Cover working areas with paper towel or diapers and wipe spills immediately with alcohol. 3 Do not use alcohol to remove resins from your skin, it increases penetration. Use soap & water. 4 Get medical attention for any suspicious skin rash. 5 Harden all waste resin before disposal, wrap discarded containers, beakers, vials, pipettes, etc. carefully. 6 Never pour any plastic containing solutions (e.g., propylene oxide epon mixture) down the drain. They will harden. 7 Store in fume hood, until disposal, all hardened waste: RESINS, RESIN MIXTURE AND FILM MAKING SOLUTIONS (A coffee can or large bottle can be used).
