Hello everyone!  I work at a Veterinary Diagnostic Lab for the University of 
Arizona, and we are interested in any information that you can give us about 
non-formalin based fixatives.  We receive tissues from outside veterinarians 
and clinics, and using the mailing system with formalin gets a bit 
complicated.  Does it work as well as formalin?  Does it cause any problems 
with the dehydration process?  Can it interfere with any special stains?  
Any information anyone can give me would be great.  Thanks for your time!
