Hi, first of all i would advise you to not get into panic (please forgive me
my gramatics, english is not my first language).
After that you should start cleaning whatever you have been touching. Here
we take away EtBr contaminations with Chlorine, the one you by in the
supermarket. For your finger, well, just wash it very but very well. And
please, in the future wear gloves!! For everything you do in the lab you
should wear gloves and something to protect your clothes (i don´t remember
I also think it's to soon for you to book a place in a graveyard....
