RE: [Histonet] Lymph node fixative/enhance solutions

From:"Mike Pence"

We used straight acetone and the fat turns translucent and the nodes
turn white within 10 minutes. Easy to get, cheap and no mixing or
purchasing reagents.

Subject: [Histonet] Lymph node fixative/enhance solutions

Our pathologists would like us to start using a solution to help with
the dissection and ID of lymph nodes at gross.  I have done some
searching thru the archives and found some recipes but would like to
find a commercial source.  We do use Pen-Fix but it doesn't dissolve the
fat like the paths would like.  Has anyone got a source or recipe for a
fat dissolving solution that they would like to share?
