SDS and environmental hazards

Recommended Posts

How should the fluorescence enhancer fluid be disposed of.  Are there any components that are toxic to the users or the environment.  A search for SDS or MSDS yields not results.

The Fluorescence enhancer contains a very low concentration of Kathon CG at 0.002% concentration. It is listed in the SDS for the actual kit you purchased. We recommend it is diposed according to local regulations. 

In most labs I have been in this low concentration is not deemed dangerous in any way and is just flushed down the drain. 

Other than that the enhancer does not contain anything "dangerous" to the environment.
