I am needing information on large animal testes, particular
canine testes, type of fixation and do you have a special
technique for taking sections without damaging the testes.

We currently fix them at necropsy in 10% formalin, making cuts at

both poles poles.
We are having damage to the testes, showing up microscopically,
and also there does not seem to be proper infiltration of
formalin in the testes.  They are pink in the center 2-3 days
after being put in the fixative.

Any information you can give me would be most appreciated.
