It has come to my attention recently that some of our histology clients are submitting their samples in PBS after fixation, instead of 70% alcohol. When I ask them why they don't know and say they have been told to. I have always followed the procedure that after fixation specimens are stored, short term in 70% alcohol, until you are ready to process them. Has something changed lately that I am not aware of?
