Subject: [Histonet] Ethanol/other fixations for frozen sections

Just taking a survey .... What are everyone's thoughts on using 
ethanol for frozen sections? I have a colleague who swears by it but 
I am an acetone person myself.

Thoughts, comments, input on what is the best fix for frozen section
