RE: [Histonet] couple of questions

From:Marion Hiles

Answer to question 2: Why would it not be OK to use alcoholic formalin since both, as separate solutions, are used in the majority of tissue processing schedules? We use alcoholic formalin on our VIP.

Hi Everyone,
I have a few questions,
1. Is anyone using a "home" type vacuum for the cryostat. Of course the bags would go in the medical waste.
2. Is Alcoholic formalin OK to put on the VIP tissue processor, there is no acetic acid in the solution.
I appreciate all your help.
