To not answer your question - we fix eyes and testes in Modified Davidsons 
for 48 hours then transfer to formalin to await processing. 
Since mDF is basically formalin, alcohol, and gaa - a water rinse step is 
pretty moot.

[Histonet] Modified Davidson's fixative use

Dear colleagues,

For those who use modified Davidson's fixative for your samples, do you do 
a water rinse prior to starting them in alcohol dehydration series, or 
simply go from fixative into the alcohol?
