Guidelines for sorting of unfixed cells have been completed by the ISAC   
Biohazard Working Group and will be published soon in Cytometry.  Let me   
know if you are interested in a pre-print, I will try to find out if I   
can send this to you.

Subject:  Aeresolization of Biohazardous Material

Dear Flow Communinity:

How are people (especially the sorter folks) addressing the issue
of acquiring/sorting biohazardous material which has the potential
for aeresolizing.  Are these facilities restricted or confined
strictly within a P-3 facility.  I am concerned that general
percautionary measures are not sufficient to address this issue.

Please respond.  Thank you in advance!
