This may be a question that is found on this site often but since this
is new to me I will ask anyway.  We recently purchased a new processor
and I am having some problems with fixation. All my lab has ever used is
10% Buffered Formalin and I would like to try something in addition to
this.  I have alot of breast tissue and uteri that is not getting fixed
properly. (Mushy middles!!)  Any suggestions would be appreciated.  We
process about a 12 hour run with the tissues in each solution for a
least an hour.  Yes I have tried to get the Pathologist to work with me
and cut thinner  pieces, but he seems to think they are just fine.
Thanks!!  I am so glad to be part of this.  I think this will really be
helpful to alot of techs out there!
