[Histonet] frozen section fixative

I found a great F/S fixative from American Master Tech Scientific.  
Have been using it for several years.  It works quickly, does not
contain formalin and smells a bit like chocolate. Now I rarely lose a
section (mostly cartilage, in which case we use lysine treated slides).

What are people using to fix their frozen sections prior to staining
with H&E?
