Re: Alcoholic Formalin

Hi Rita - We  have been using an alcohol/formalin mix on our processor for
quite some time now.  It is a Richard Allen product called Penfix.  Our
stations are as follows:  2 formalins, penfix, 80% Alcohol, two 95%
alcohols, two 100% alcohols, and two xylenes.  This seems to work well for
us, however once in a while we still have to reprocess fatty blocks if the
pathologists put in a huge hunk, or put it in too late.  Hope this helps.
