Amazing isn't it, that whilst all the human diagnostic labs are going for the quickest turnaround times, they use the slowest fixative. 
Beam me up (the late) Scottie.

Subject: [Histonet] Formalin substitutes

Dear colleagues:
  I have a question: besides BoonFix, GlyoFix, Histochoice, HistoFix, KryoFix, MicroFix,
  Mirsky'sFixative, NeoFix, NoTox, OmniFix (II and 2000), Prefer, Preserve, SafeFix, StatFix,
  STF (Streck Tissue Fixative), and UMFIX, which other formalin substitutes you know exist and/or have used?
  Did you all know that formalin is still the fixing agent of choice for 81% of all histology labs (meaning the only 19% use substitutes)?
  René J.

Ahhh...imagining that irresistible "new car" smell?
