I always fix them for 48h and move them to 70% ethanol.

 Hello Everyone, I am asking this for a friend.
How long can mouse testis be kept in Bouins without distortion of cell
morphology? Days? weeks? months? years?
I noticed in the Archives that many people fix in Bouins , rinse, then
store in 70% EtOH. This is preferable I assume. Again, how long is ok?
   Thanks in advance for the sharing of your accumulated wisdom,
