Re: back to the B5 topic

From:Sarah Jones

Hi Luong,
   I would think a good alternative would be Zinc Formalin.  I'm sure Anatech carries it, and I think I have seen protocols to make your own as well.  I have not heard of any deadline to stop usage of B5.   Sarah

Does anyone out there still using B5 fixative?   If you switch to another
substitute, what is a good one?
Has anyone do any comparison studies?  When is the deadline to stop the
usage of B5?

Any suggestion would be very helpful.
