RE: [Histonet] gallon to liter conversion

From:"Rittman, Barry R"

I think that you should wait for a response from the company as the
measure that you use will, I assume, depend primarily on the market for
which the company marketed the material.
If this is to make buffered formalin then it probably doesn't make a
whole lot of difference as long as you check the pH. The final
concentration of formalin is usually acceptable within a range.

Subject: [Histonet] gallon to liter conversion

hello all,

I have 2 sachets of powder that can be made into 1 gallon of formalin.
What converting factor do I use? Given that this powder is  from a
company in Stanwood, WA, should I use American gallons = 3.79 liter or
Imperial gallons = 4.41litre? Does it make any difference in the long
run? I have contacted the company, but am still waiting for a reply.
 Many thanks
