Silver nitrate

Does anyone have a process where procedural techs (cath lab, IR, etc) are authorized to remove silver nitrate from pyxis? For our organization, it is not deemed within their scope of practice and are therefore not authorized to handle silver nitrate. Does anyone have a different process at their site?

Thank you
