Hi Carrie,
	The formula we use in cytology is :
Industrial Meth Spirit ( 74OP )	2880 ml
Glacial Acetic Acid	 	  200 ml
Formaldehyde ( 40% )		  200 ml
Distilled Water			  720 ml

	I'm afraid I don't have any references for you, as the folk in
Cytology have gone home.
		Hope this helps,

Can anyone give me the protocol for making Davidson's fixative and nay
information you may have on it?
