RE: Jore's Fixative

From:Bruce Gapinski

I thought Chloral Hydrate was a controlled substance (knock-out drops or
something) and used in Mayer's hematoxylin.

		Jore's is a buffered formalin fixative which contains
chloral hydrate.  
		We have used it for years.  Fresh specimens are placed in
the fixative 
		and do not turned that "fixed" color but, rather, retain the
		look.  It is good for showing students lesions months after
the tissue 
		has been taken from the body.  
		     Contact me personally is you are interested in the
formulation of 
		the solution.  Cheryl
