The International Agency for Research on Cancer classifies formaldehyde as a human carcinogen.
Formalin, a commonly used fixative for preserving tissue specimens contains 10% formaldehyde. Exposures to formalin occur by inhalation or by skin/eye contact and are greatly increased when the accidental formalin spills occur.
NoSpill™ provides a simple and inexpensive solution to formalin spills occurring in Endoscopy Units, ORs and Pathology Departments of hospitals and medical clinics. Please see the list of standard NoSpill™ trays.
