Ethidium bromide - how to throw ethedium bromide after staining (Dec/07/2005 )
hi! could you please tell me how to throw ethedium bromide after staining the gel, thanks
Use a dedicated ethidium bromide bin. I'm not 100% sure how you dispose of it after that though.
Labs usually have a special arraingment how to dispose EtBr and other toxic compound. Ask around.
schleicher and schuell provides columns to remove etbr
active carbon is used also and cheaper...
we use ethidium bromide destain bags such as these
