RE: whole organ fixation with color retention
The standard way to preserve specimens and colour is to go through the tedium of transferring them through Kaiserling's solutions (1 to 3).
I presume books still have the method, but if not, e-mail me privately and I will get the method typed out for you.

Subject: whole organ fixation with color retention
We have a researcher interested in retaining whole organs for teaching
purposes, but would like the original color of the organ to remain intact.
I know a similar topic was addressed not too long ago, and I have read the
archives, but wanted to see if anyone had suggestions other than
plastination. Ideally, he would like a fixative - and the only one I've
found a reference for contains chloral hydrate - which he can't purchase as
a DEA number is required to do so.
Any suggestions you may have would be greatly appreciated.
