Safety with Special Stains


Histology laboratories perform a wide range of special stains that include multiple chemicals many of which have unique hazards. This workshop will cover the appropriate handling of dyes and reagents used in special stains. The discussion will consist of reviewing staining protocols to determine the hazards of stain mixtures. We will examine options for minimizing exposure without compromising quality by alternate stain protocols, engineering controls, and work practices and personnel protective equipment.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Recognize chemical hazards in histology staining protocols.
  2. Evaluate standard operating procedures for handling staining reagents.
  3. Select appropriate engineering controls, work practices & PPE.
