Re: [Histonet] Lymph node fixative/enhance solutions

From:Rene J Buesa

I used to prepare a solution that revealed the lymph nodes quite well:
  Ethanol 100%--- 2.0 litres +
  distilled water ---- 680 mL +
  40% formalin ---- 320 mL +
  acetic acid -- 200 mL
  LN were revealed hardened and whitish
  Give it a try!

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?
