Re: [Histonet] Help with Carnoy

From:"Joe Nocito"

I started using Carnoy's again because I was being told by my pathologists 
that I wasn't retrieving all the lymph nodes in colon and breast cases. I 
hope you have a well-ventilated area to work in because the fumes get pretty 
strong. We put the used Carnoy's in our alcohol/xylene waste containers to 
be carried off. Good luck

Is anyone currently using Carnoy for fat dissolution in an attempt to 
retrieve lymph nodes particularly in colon resections? If so pleases advise 
of process and disposal. The name of manufacturer or vender would also be
