Changes have taken place in the world of infection control for Funeral Directors and Embalmers.
Anubis Consulting have changed their name to AP Consultancy. http://www.ap-consultancy.co.uk
The reason for the change is to reflect the fact that we cover broader issues than those affecting bereavement services and the name Anubis was considered a little inappropriate.
Trials are still continuing with the new formaldehyde free embalming/preservation fluid and we hope to have more news soon. The first trials and indications gave exceptional results. The new product is perfectly safe to use and economical.

The recent surge in funerals is a consequence of the recent rise in influenza infections.
Infection control and education is a vital part of health and safety procedures.

An interesting issue arose recently at Moray Crematorium in Scotland, where a body preserved with high levels of formaldehyde sparked a fire at the crematorium.  It appears that the incident, last September, involved a Scottish holidaymaker who had died while on holiday in Bulgaria. The body had been flown back to Scotland for cremation following a post-mortem examination.  Apparently, the body had been preserved in levels of formaldehyde far in excess of normal British levels.

Clearly, this can pose a problem for crematoria, owing to the very low flash point of formaldehyde.  Are you able to give some indication of the flammability of the new material?

The new material does not have a flashpoint neither is it hazardous to human health or the environment.
