Re: [Histonet] mercury free fixatives


Thermo sells Zinc Formal Fixx. That works fairly well for a B-5
substitute. We can send you a sample if you'd like. Let me know.

I am trying to find a replacement for B5 fixative for lymph nodes and bone
marrow.  I am currently testing B-Plus fixative but am not completely happy
with the results so far.  Has anybody had good results with B-Plus or
another mercury free alternative?  Any feedback would be greatly
