Hi Paula, wow!  There are several web sites (CAP News) and articles (type in 
C...Jakob and sterilization on medline).  The jist of it is let it fix for 
two weeks like normal in formalin.  Put it in 10% FOrmic Acid for two hours 
before normal processing.  Process and cut like normal.  The grossing 
equipment should be in 10%formic acid for two hours then sterilized in an 
autoclave...  good luck and be safe!
