[Histonet] brain tissue

Brain tissues require more time to be fixed correctly so, at least, 48 hours fixation.
They also require a complete/perfect infiltration so do not even think in processing them as "ordinary" surgical specimens are. They will require at least to be processed as breast are.
I used to have a separate machine/protocol for brains.

How is everyone processing brain tissue from brain surgery, not necessarily a small bx?  Does anyone have a separately timed process for such tissue to get them out faster?  And what is the minimum fixation time suggested?
