[Histonet] Zinc formalin

From:"Lorraine Cornett"

We are currentyl processing our biopsies in 10% neutral buffered formalin 
(short process cycle).  Our pathologists miss the nuclear detail they became 
accustomed to when we were processing in Zinc Formalin.  We seem to remember 
a procedure where you can "mordant" or post fix the actual slides before 
staining.  Does anyone have this procedure that they can share with me.
