Our lab is working on a project that involves locating calcium deposits
in avian testis.  We have tried to use Bouin's Solution, unfortunately,
it dissolves the deposits of interest.  We also tried 10% Buffered
Foramlin, however, the ultrastructure was not preserved.  Does anyone
have any suggestions for a fixative?  We need to fix both the testicular
and epididmyal tissue.
