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.
