Question about Tisue Tek VIP fixative

From:Gayle Callis (by way of Histonet)

Has anyone been using this new fixative developed by Sakura touted for
keeping VIP (other processors?) cleaner?? It was developed to prevent
tubing from clogging and eliminate the need for water rinses after cleaning

If so, questions:

A formalin fixative buffered in some proprietary way - how does is compare
to routine NBF?

Have you noticed any changes in immunohistochemistry, routine staining, and
other special stains
