Don't know what the original post was about but...this is the recipe I have been using for 10+ years that was passed on to me from a veteran HT...it works GREAT on eye histology!!

I'm not much familiar with eye pathology or histology, but let's get
Davidson's fixative right.
Called "modified Davidson's fixative" in papers published more than 50
years ago, it's
3 parts water
3 parts alcohol
2 parts 37% formaldehyde ("strong formalin", not NBF)
1 part glacial acetic acid
I can provide more information if you need it.
Dick Dubielzig (pronounced dooBILLzig) is a veterinary eye pathologist
in Madison WI who can probably help. If you can't locate him, I can
contact him - he's an old friend of mine.
