Take a look at the J. Histotechnology 24:3, Sept 2001....special issue on
Fixation. It includes a couple of articles dealing with fixation and IHC.

Great timing on this topic

I have been looking for a review article that actually puts in print the
data collected on over fixation or under fixation in samples that will be
used for IHC. To include the eventual breakdown of formalin and need for
10-20 times volume for proper fixation. Is there such a paper with all of
information that histologist reverberate and others ignore?
