Question on using methylcholanthrene

Post by liqing » Sat Jun 18, 2005 4:28 am

I am going to do the experiment on transformation in vitro with 3-methylcholanthrene. But I do not know how to protect me and the environment of the laboratory from the reagent in the experiment and how to deal with the waste 3-methylcholanthrene solution after the experiment.
Would do you like to give me some advise, please? :)

look up an MSDS (Materials Safety Data Sheet) for the chemical in question. Easiest way to get one is to contact the manufacturer or distributor of the chemical since they are required by law (US) to supply an MSDS to anyone who requests one. The MSDS will tell you everything you need to know.
