RE: [Histonet] Spirit fixation of tissue

From:"Pamela Marcum"

The Journals, the glass or the spirits, which of theses was the inheritance
here?  By the way a long time ago, in the 80's I remember a specimen being
sent (or at least it is what I was told) to the AFIP in tequila as fixative
and dehydrant.  We all mourned the lose of a good tequila as that is what
was used.  I think a cheap  one would have been just as good.
