No one should be using B5.  If your pathologist won't take "No" for an answer, get your safety officer involved.  We stopped using B5 many years ago and now use only formalin.

We have 1 Pathologist who insists on using B-5 solution for nuclear   detail 
on small biopsies.  How many labs are still using B 5 or what is you  
suggestion other than Zinc Formalin  for fixation.  Thanks.
