I need some help, we will be receiving a  kidney biopsy that the doctor
wants processed for gout.  Everything I find says to fix in alcohol, but
the only procedure I have found is in Sheehan and says to fix in alcohol
go through acetone then benzene then paraffin.  Benzene is out of the
question.  I don't see why I can't run it on a rapid process cycly that
starts in the 100% alcohol,goes through xylene then paraffin.  Does
anyone have a procedure or know if this will work. Thanks for any help.
