[Histonet] Formalin vapor fixation

From:"Favara, Cynthia (NIH/NIAID)"

Has anyone ever fixed frozen sections with formaldehyde vapor? I have looked
in Bancroft and Stevens and they mention it as a suitable fixation. I can
not find a protocol. My intention is to place a cotton ball soaked with
0.5ml of NBF in the bottom of a coplin jar, put slides in cover a leave @RT
for 15 minutes.

Sound good?
