I need some advice please.
We are currently using Bouin's fixative to fix rat tissue samples of muscle
and bone. The samples are approximately 1cm x 0.5cm and were fixed for 5
days prior to infiltration with Historesin (GMA). When cut, however, the
centres were soggy and uncutable. Is this a problem with fixation or with
the infiltration time being insufficient or both?. I seem to remember that
way back when when I was learning about such, that Bouins has poor
penetration, but excellent cytological preservation. What are the comments
and thoughts of the forum?
