You can try 4% paraformaldehyde.  I know the results using this for a
fixative for bone marrows core biopsies is very good.

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
