re: Dissect Aid

From:Pat Paulusse

You don't need to buy the stuff.  I make my own with the recipe listed below.  Works great.  I don't have the reference for it right here, but if you need it I can supply it.  The recipe is as follows: 500 ml of 100% ethanol, 170 ml distilled water, 80 ml of 40% formaldehyde, and 50 ml of glacial acetic acid.  It is recommended that the chemicals be mixed in that order.  I usually leave the specimen in for 24 hours but have left it in for longer with no ill effect.  If you try it let me know what you think.  I've already converted several Pathologists into using it.
