Easy solution is to provide your client with 10% NBF

Subject: [Histonet] alcoholic formalin

I have a client that uses alcoholic formalin as a primary fixative for
small endometrial and cervical biopsies.

What can I do to keep the cells from looking like raisins? We presently
run these biopsies on a conventional processor with a short biopsy
