RE: [Histonet] gliut/isopropyl alcohol[Scanned]

Expect the tissue is rather brittle, used to be used for electromicroscopy I
think. Wonder if you could secondary fix? Can't aldehyde/ alcohol fixation
be 'washed out' then the tissue refixed in something more conventional?

Hi histonetters,
 I received samples that have been fixed   in a   1%glut / 20% isopropyl
alcohol solution for paraffin processing. I have never heard of this
fixative, I know alcoholic formalin but never alcoholic glutaraldehyde.
Are any of you familiar with this fixative?
Thank you.
