Dear Richard,

This product is a preservative of RNA, not a tissue fixative.
Tissue still needs to be fixed, unless it is fresh eg cultured cells.
Check this link and notice that the tumour
tissue was fixed in acetic alcohol. Tissue frozen in RNAlater may prove
difficult to cryosection.
I found RNAlater is not useful for preserving RNA during IHC, for subsequent
microdissection and extraction.
