Formalin has been a linchpin chemical in anatomic pathology for more than 100 years, despite widespread recognition that formalin is a hazardous chemical and dangerous to the health of lab workers and the environment. That’s why it is important news that a new technology solution can help pathology labs greatly reduce the use of formalin for key steps in specimen collection, transport, processing, and storage.

The benefits from reducing the use of formalin are immediate and significant:

~ In the operating room, much less formalin is needed to prepare the tissue for transport to the pathology laboratory

~ For OR physicians and nurses, this greatly reduces their exposure to formalin

~ Increased safety and a reduced likelihood of spills in the OR

~ Reduces the Lab’s cost of handling and disposal of tissue samples

~ Reduced cost to comply with formalin hazardous waste disposal guidelines

~ Minimizes Chemical Exposure by Histotechnologists and Pathologists
