Dear fellow histonetters,

                                                   Has anybody heard of and/or
used the new fixative called S.T.F. ?  I believe it might also go by the name
Davidson's STF.  I was told that this fixative is genomics friendly and does not
degrade any DNA or RNA thereby making retrieval of RNA possible from parrafin
embedded tissue.  If anyone has any information on this I would love to hear
from you.  I am very interested in learning what exactly is in this fixative and
how it works.

Thanking you in advance,
