Formol Sucrose.
0.2M. phosphaste buffer (pH7.4).  =  90ml.
sucrose.                                             =  7.5g.
40% formalin.                                   =  10ml.

	Try the following method, it works a treat.
	If you don't have the journal let me know and I'll e-mail the
method. It works on fresh, fixed, paraffin processed and resin sections.
