A colleague asked me to pass this question along to the list: Is it ok to storage ethanol in a -80 freezer? Details below...
Subject: RE: minus 80 storage
Tissue is stored in 95% Ethanol. Even at 95% a freezer -20 or -80 is well below the flashpoint (60F). Not sure if that matters or not. I am worried about OSHA and NFPA. I think OSHA 1910 has something to say about flammables in freezers.
