Hi everyone - does anyone know how effective these formalin substitutes
are at killing microorgansms9esp HG3) in the tissue fixed? I know that
Finefix states that because of the alcohol content being over 70% that
it is effective against many micro-organisms but info seems scarce on
the others


Thanks and have a nice weekend
