We use 20% formalin, and leave it in there for about a month.

Subject: [Histonet] Brain fixative
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!!
