[Histonet] VIP fixative

From:"Lester Raff"

Hi all:


We process only small biopsies and have a new Sakura Tissue Tek VIP 5
processor.  At the advice of the rep we have switched from formalin to
Tissue Tek VIP Fixative for processing.  In my opinion, this has made
the tissues more brittle and has also had a negative impact on IHC.  Has
anyone else noticed a problem like this?
