Our new medical director is requesting to use Zinc formalin.  I have not
used this fixative before and I need your help.  We have a small volume
and place everything on one processor for an overnight run.  Please give
me your insights.  We use VIP embedding medium for paraffin and use
graded alcohols (70, 80, 95, and 100) and Xylene on the processor.  

Thank you in advance for your information,

Annette Foshey, HT
