Happy NMLW Everyone!!!!!

One of my Pathologists asked me to ask a question:

Has anyone had success in finding colonic lymph nodes in fat AFTER
fixation with 10% NB Formalin?  This Pathologist has tried the
Dissect-aid and other solutions that seem to work on fresh fat, but he
has had no luck trying this after the fat has been in formalin.

Any suggestions or comments would be helpful and appreciated!
