   Uric  acid  crystals  (urates)  should be fixed in absolute alcohol.&   nbsp;  You  want  to  preserve  them,  but they are soluble in aqueous
   solutions.=   When processing the tissue begin in the absolute alcohol
   on the proc= essor.

   should the specimen be sent to = us fresh or should it be in some sort
   I  had  a  discus=  sion with the pathologist, and I told him that the
   should  be  re=  ceived  fresh.   He thought that fixing it in alcohol
   should be OK
