Sarah,  Try using Zinc Formalin.  A lot of Pathologists are contented with
the results achieved. I can send you a sample of Shandon's Zinc Formalin if
you like.  Let me know

Have a great Day,

Hello all,

One of my consultants wants to use B5 for his bone marrows. He doesn't
know anything about it except it contains mercury, as far as
I'm concerned the discussion stops there, as we wont be using it, but he
asked me to find out.

what is in it? does anyone use it? is there a safer alternative?

Thanks for your help
