We have a pathologist who has developed asthma and a severe allergy to
formalin. We would like to explore the formalin substitutes that are
currently on the market.  Is there anyone out there using a substitute for
all surgical pathology specimens? What are the pros and cons of these? How
has the cost impacted your lab? Thanks in advance for your help.
