RE: Abalone


Dear Jeremy, I'm a bit late but here is my 2 cents. We cut hundreds of blocks of abalone, oysters, fish fry,etc. and we only use 10% neutral formalin. According to the Veterinary pathologist that reports the slides there is no discernable difference with this technique and using a salt-water formalin. She and others have done comparisons and can't pick difference. David.
