container for cytotoxic drugs

Just guessing. Are these drugs kept in a special container?

My Pons Fachwörterbuch Medizin gives 'cytotoxic drug' for Zytostatikum.

\"Ich kenne nur \"Zytostatika\". Das sind Medikamente, die das Wachstum von Tumoren verhindern.\"
\"Kenne ebenfalls nur Zytostatika. Wird aber oft von Leuten falsch als \"Zytostatiker\" zitiert. Also eine Gruppe von Pharmaka, die die Zellteilung aufgrund verschiedener Beeinträchtigungen des Stoffwechsels unterbinden.\" From google search:http://forum.myphorum.de/read.php?f=4054&i=11208&t=11208&v=f
