Re: transporting samples in formalin

I used to ship large numbers of nbf fixed specimens just by emptying the
containers. They're fixed and will be wet enough to keep moist for a long
time. Some small ones I wrapped in cheese cloth wet with nbf.
some presevatives you can put in after fixed with nbf.
2-Phenoxy-ethanol used at 1% dilution has worked well for me. (sigma
P-1126). Prefer fix has been great for us. Wouldn't go back to nbf for
