[Histonet] Formalin alternative

From:"Amos Brooks"



Interesting,
     After my saying it worked well :-) What tissues were you working with
that the morpho was poor? (So I don't try it & get the same results) We
don't use it for everything, so I guess it could be tissue dependant. I
swear it is the shiznit for these mouse lungs.

Different strokes I guess,
Amos

In my opinion, for pharma research, there is no worthwhile formalin
substitute that will give consistent IHC results.   I have tried STF
(which was discontinued) and other subs - finally went back to formalin.
With STF, the morphology of routine H+E's was horrible.    I'm sure there
are differing opinions out there - after all, this is histonet.
