RE: [Histonet] 37% formaldehyde & the UK & Europe
I asked a question about formalin/formaldehyde nomenclature about a
year ago and received several excellent replies. The question is
answered in the following paper (which a very nice and patient
histonetter sent me the reference for):
Proper nomenclature of formaldehyde and paraformaldehyde fixatives
for histochemistry. Manoonkitiwongsa, P.S. The Histochemical
Journal 34: 365-367. 2002.
Even though I got such good and informative replies to my question I
cannot really reproduce them here in a way that would be clear and
articulate enough for anyone to understand, so I suggest people read
the article. The article is very clear and informative and after
reading it carefully I understand formalin/formaldehyde for about 30
minutes before I am hopelessly confused again. If anyone needs it I
can send a pdf.
