We use B-Plus Fixative from BBC Biochemical Corp.  Works great and the
pathologists are pleased.

Have a Great Day,

Subject: B5 Substitutes

I have a meeting today to discuss the elimination of B5 from our
Histology Laboratory.  I know this topic has been discussed before, and
I just searched the archives, but I am looking for more current
information.  What are people using as a substitute for B5 for lymph
nodes and bone marrows, and are your pathologists completely satisfied
with it?  Thank you.
