Hi all,
I am trying to reduce the volume of formalin and solvent waste in my Lab. Has anyone had experience and comments on non formalin fixatives? Also, I have been able to use Aqua DePar from Biocare to deparaffinize my sections for H&E, special stains and immunohistochemistry with great results but would also like to try an H&E without alcohol differentiation and dehydration. Does anyone know of a H&E procedure that does not use alcohol after eosin?
