[Histonet] fixation question for IHC

Is there a difference between using paraformaldehyde and neutral buffered formalin when choosing a fixative for IHC?  I would prefer to use formalin because of easier preparation, but am willing to put in the extra time to make fresh paraformaldehyde solution if there is a compelling reason.
