That is a phosphate precipitate most likely from your 10%NBF.
Try going into a 70% ETOH first followed by higher concentrations.
To see for yourself pour 10%NBF into graded alcohols- Precipitate is easy to see with 100% ETOH

Subject: [Histonet] Precipitate in Processor
Has anyone ever seen a (salt?) precipitate in their alcohols following formalin? While changing the processor this morning, I noticed a precipitate in the 80% alcohol and 95% alcohol (NOT in the 70% alcohol). It is white and grainy. The alcohols were otherwise unaffected.
We are using a 10% NBF containing:
Sodium Phosphate, monobasic
Sodium Phosphate, dibasic
And our alcohols are all reagent grade.
Any help would be very much appreciated! Thank you in advance!
