Re: RiskAssess chemical codes

Sean is very happy with Riskassess.
To be honest though he probably has no idea about chemical labeling and codes etc.
He lets me run my own race with that.
He travels in the Physics world rather than Chemistry. :whistling2:

Re: RiskAssess chemical codes

My HT loves it and I'm pretty happy with it too.
Especially the labels.
I had the same moment of confusion when the extra box appeared.................... :unsure:

Re: SDS for Food Tech?

I have printed off a couple of SDSs for our FT assistant. I can't remember what for - most likely laundry products like bleach or some such. You've just reminded me about them - they're probably out of date now. :redcard: I'd better check.

Re: Technician recognition

Nothing here.
We used to be treated like royalty for a few days and end with a big morning tea with us as guests of honour, but under new management: nothing.

Re: Phenolphthalein Agar

Short of using the microwave, perhaps heating in a water bath?

I couldn't manage without my cranky old microwave :thumbup:

Yes this is what I usually do.

Re: Best M.W. information

If in doubt, make your own calculations using the molecular weight of the chemical.
I have to rush off to a meeting now but I'm sure someone else can explain. Once you do this, you'll wonder why you ever had to look it up! :thumbup:

Re: What is the name of your roles

I work in a government school in NSW and I am an Admin Officer. I work in the library, office and Science because we are a very small school and we have to be flexible. I feel that Science is my home, though.

Re: MTA products going downhill fast?

I have had all sorts of issues with MTA. Not buying from them again!!
Just yesterday I received an order from them from September last year, which I actually cancelled in November, so wasn't expecting to receive it ever. :redcard:

Re: Are MTA still in business??

I've had so much trouble getting things paid for properly and dealing with the discounts offered by Bill and then not followed through on the invoices, also large orders come in in dribs and drabs, so I have to do multiple confirmations for each order.

Your local Rotary Club may collect to send overseas, or know of a charity that does.

Re: Potassium permanganate crystals

Sorry Milo I'm working in the office today. I'll be back at my desk tomorrow and will let you know where I found them. Can't remember right now.

Thanks, Shell1. We don't have a Chemist Warehouse anywhere nearby.
