Re: Glyco-Fixx versus liquid gold

From:Mikael Niku

We tried Glyo-Fixx (I suppose you meant this) a couple
of years ago, as it sounded extremely good for our needs.

General tissue morphology was OK, but we couldn't make it
work for our most important application (in situ hybridization),
so we abandoned it. We probably didn't try immunohistochemistry or
if we did, it didn't work.

I would be interested to hear other comments
(especially more positive ones!). Back then I couldn't
find much at all anywhere.
