Anyone have any SOPs  they could share for the use of chemotherapeutics?   We’re primarily concerned with their use in tissue culture and compounding, diluting, etc.,  prior to animal work.  We found lots of info out there for hospitals and human pharmacies that is not fully applicable.   I need to rewrite what we have and some of the researchers are complaining that “…we didn’t need to do it that way when I was at…” when we discussed it with them.  Any input greatly appreciated.   Thanks in advance!
