RE: lymph node revealing solution

From:"Charles.Embrey" <>

Linda's right.  It's the real (original) Carnoy's Fix.  I use it and it's
Acetic Acid   10ml
100% ETOH     60ml
Chloroform    30ml

It clears the fat faster than alcohol or formalin mixed with GAA.

This is a real solution;your pathologist isn't dreaming it up. I used to
have the formula.It's alcohol ,acetic acid and maybe chloroform.If I don't
see that someone has come up with it for you I will try to find it.
