Re: [Histonet] IBF and prostates-your experience

Probably, because in 3 hours in IBF the biopsies will probably be fixed with the alcohols contained in IBF (methanol and 2-propanol). What I don't see is why you want to transferáthem áto 10% NBF.

Hi folks,
If were to use IBF for the collection of prostate cores and they only
fixed in IBF for 3 hrs before being transferred to 10% formalin for
processing with everything else, are the benefits of better nuclear
morphology still likely to be realized? 
Thank you.
