Anytime you have autopsy you must not only change fixation time but also processing time.
Small and large tissue will fix and process in much less time. My lab does autopsy on a regular schedule. We do small tissue in just under 5 hours, Large tissue is 10 hours, Autopsy is just over 18 hours. We have worked out these schedules over the past 5 years and this is the best for our lab, we do not have under or over processing. Hope that this helps.
