A year or so ago there was a discussion on "freeze-resistant formalin".
I've searched the archives in Histosearch to no avail. Or lots of travail,
if I read every message that comes up with freeze & formalin. None come up
with "freeze-resistant formalin".

There is such a thing sold by someone as I recall, but how good is it for
histology? EM level histology? How low can the temperature drop before
normal 37-40% formalin freezes anyway? Etc. ...

Replies by vendors directly to me are welcome.
