[Histonet] long term storage of specimens

From:Colleen Forster


I have been asked to post a question:

A museum has tissue samples for teaching stored in 10% formalin. They 
are wondering what other solution they might be able to use that would 
be less toxic. This would take the place of the formalin for long term 
storage. I believe they take the samples out for demonstration so 
putting them in a plastic is not an option.

Any suggestions????
