RE: Breast Tissue

From:Fred Underwood

Hi Histolady.  I will refer you to volume 23, number 1 of JOH, March 2000.  The article is alcohol/xylene: the unlikely fixative/dehydrant/clearant.  It deals with using a dehydrant solution that is 70% absolute alcohol and 30% xylene ( 5-6 changes of this) then clear with xylene and into paraffin.
I swithched to this schedule 2 years ago.  I deal with some pretty decent size chunks of tissue, and they process quite well with this.  Good luck.

	Does anyone out there in histoland have any suggestions for fatty breast 
tissue processing?  We are having a terrible time getting some of our breast 
tissue fixed well.    Thanks in advance for your responses.
