I was wondering if there is anyone who uses a fixative for breast tissue
that is comprised of formalin, alcohol and/or acetic acid.  We are looking
for something that fixes fatty tissue better than buffered formalin.   If
you have such a fixative, could you share the recipe with us.   Also, does
this fixative have any negative effects on immuno staining, in particular
estrogen and progesterone receptors.

Thank you.   Sandra via Barb!
