[Histonet] Formalin and Xylene Free Histology - Any Info

From:"Amos Brooks"

My standard formalin alternative rant was sent privately ... if anyone is
interested see the archives. No sense reposting my redundant disagreement
with this concept!

Hello Again:

I am looking into Microwave processing and using Glyo Fixx as the fixative.
I am starting a histology lab, pretty much from scratch, but I have very
little experience in using Formalin and Xylene alternatives. The question I
have concerning the Glyo Fixx is whether or not I will need to use the same
safety precautions we use when grossing/handling specimens fixed in
formalin. Does it still need to be grossed under a hood? Are the ventilation
requirements different.

If anyone here is using this, can you tell me how you handle this.
