Subject: [Histonet] Dissolving fat around lymphnodes of breast

Does some one out there have a specialize solution for dissolving fat from
around the lymphnodes of breast or bowel tissue..... Our pathologists seem
to have a hard time taking the fat off of the nodes and it makes it harder
for the tech to cut due to unfixed fat... anyone's expertise would be
appreciate... Is there a fixative out there from a company or is there one
that we can make.... thank you   Pam Davala HT(ASCP) Supervisor of Histology
