[Histonet] Re: Processing fatty breast tissue and fatty derm tissue

From:Ramona Turner

I also would like some advice on processing fatty tissue.  I have tried using Pen-Fix prior to processing, but my pathologist complain about an artifact and refuse to use it anymore.  Can't explain that one.  I am currently processing with formalin x2, 70% x2, 95% x2, 100% x2, clearing x2.  I thought the dehydration step should be increased on the fatty tissue, but you are saying that is not the problem?  Can someone else please offer some experience on this issue.
