In our lab we are testing a product called Prefer from Anatech.  It has
performed well so far.
We did not find any of the "Zinc Fixatives" performed as well as B5 (or
Prefer for that matter).
Good Luck...and GO WINGS!  (That's Detroit Redwings hockey for those of you
across the pond!)

I am trying to pursuade our pathologists from using B5 fixatives. I know
of the zinc substitutes, but some of our pathologists weren't happy with
them. Any ideas or suggestions. Are some Zinc fixatives better than
Thanks in advance.
