[Histonet] Polyethylene glycol?


Tim Coskran somewhere asks about demonstrating polyethylene glycol in tissue samples.

Does he mean polyethylene as in prosthetic implants?. Dr? Vinh in the Orthopedic Department at the AFIP co-authored?a paper published?in about 1990 entitled " Identification of polymeric debris is tissue sections by the?Oil Red O staining method."??
? I am pretty sure polyethylene glycol is a fluid and would not survive paraffin processing.
