I have a consult case (open lung biopsy) fixed in Hollande's fixative that was sent to me for immunoperoxidase staining.  I understand that Hollande's is a modification of Bouin's fixative.  Can you digest and heat-treat tissues that have been fixed in this fixative or is pretreatment not necessary?  Thanks!
