[Histonet] Fixatives

From:Patti Loykasek

After reading John Kiernan's eloquent dissertation on knowing your fixative,
I thought I'd venture on a similar topic. We are a reference lab and receive
specimens from all over the USA. One of my "pet peeves" is that it is rare
to see in the report exactly what type of fixative the specimen was received
in or subsequently processed in. I know we have no standard form of
reporting, but it just seems like best practice to me to include this
information on the report. One of my favorites is "...received in
fixative..." - not very helpful. I could go on & on.
At any rate, this is just a bit of a Friday rant. I was wondering how others
felt as perhaps I am too far in left field (or maybe just the 'left"coast).
Thanks all.
