[Histonet] zinc fixative


Hi everybody!
    I want to know  if after a fixation with zinc fixative(for IHC), we can process the tissue in a regular formalin program (paraffin impregnation)? Should I change the first bath (fromalin) for the zinc fixative (with formaline). Is it corrosive for the processor? And should I rince the tissue in tap water before the processing to release zinc residue?
Thanks for your help!
