If substitution isn’t possible, employers are asked to limit operator exposure with the use of closed system and monitor formalin’s effects on the user’s body. In response to this concern, Milestone has developed UltraSAFE, an automatic formalin dispending system for buckets in the OR, which supports the concept of zero formalin exposure preventing...
