fixing rat tissues

From:"Dalefield, Rosalind" <>


We are doing very comprehensive necropsies on rats and are finding that we
end up with numerous small containers per rat.  I once toured a
pharmaceutical company (on the other side of the world) and saw technicians
dissecting mice and putting the tissues into multi-chambered, perforated
containers that were then sunk in a tank of fixative. I don't know where to
get such containers, can anyone suggest sources?

Thanks in advance,
