[Histonet] Rate of formalin penetration in human brain sections


One of our investigators is interested in the approximate rate of fixation 
of human brain tissue, independent of any formaldehyde diffusion effects. 
In other words, in a very small or very thin piece of human brain tissue, 
what is the fixation rate? He found published data for rat kidney, but 
would like to try to at least determine if the fixation rate should be 
higher or lower in human brain tissue. He is looking for data for room 
temperature, but any information would be greatly appreciated.
