Hello - A researcher is fixing 7-21 day old chicken embryos in 10% NBF.  
After processing they are mushy and almost amorphous.  Has anyone any 
suggestions for a fixative that will give the embryos more form and still 
have the tissue capable of doing IHC?   I had thought of 4F1G.  Any help is 
really appreciated.
