Re:  Paraffin Types

We're using Paraplast for processing and Paraplast Plus for embedding.
Been using Paraplast for a good 20 years.  Thank you all who answered my
question about bone marrow fixative.  Seems the majority of people in
histo land here, are using the B+, which I'm going to try it out.  

Now another question.  The pathologist's use Bouin's to dip their
specimens in after inking the margins.  I'd actually like to get rid of
Bouin's from the gross room.  I'm thinking what is setting ink/dye is
really the acetic acid/water combination.  Has anyone ever used just
acetia acid/water, or white vinegar for that matter??  Thank you.
