Museum specimens

From:Andrew Kennedy

I wonder if any histonetters are mounting specimens in pots for display in
medical/pathology museums - we still do quite a lot of this work and I would
be interested to hear from others about what mounting fluids you are using
(eg Wentworths 5, Progers solutions etc...) - we are in the process of
remounting some old specimens and have had some problems with fat leaching
out of some specimens when we use Progers solution.

We use Wentworths 5 and add sodium dithionite to enhance the colour of the
specimens and this stuff stinks! What else can we use?
