Aren't they the same? We've had this debate; 4% formaldehyde is 10%
formalin. 'Lightly buffered' is that like lightly salted?

Does anyone fix their brain tissue from autopsies in anything other than
10% buffered formalin?  The PA I am working with seems to feel they used
a 4% solution of lightly buffered formalin from Mallincroft.  Can anyone
help me with this, as I am only used to using 10% formalin, as we use
for all of our routine histology fixation.  Any ideas would be greatly
appreciated and thanks ahead of time to all of my fellow
histonetters..what a great group you are!!
