We use zinc formalin for the bone marrow specimens, and the pathologists are satisfied with the results.

Subject: [Histonet] bone marrow fixative

Good afternoon everyone,
In past years our lab used B-5 fixative on bone marrow biopsies for better immunostaining.
With the chemical hazards of B-5 we switched to AZF fixative and have been using this for the past few years. I am just curious what everyone else is using for fixative on their bone marrows and how is your immunoreactivity?  Maybe a better question is what is the preferred fixative for bone marrows?
Have a nice day,
