Not a disposal query.

"There are substitutes for it for most purposes."

Bob, I am interested in "most" and "substitutes"

In what situation does "most"   not apply?

What substitutes?

For example, I  read that tissues are fixed in Picric acid-containing Formalin for IHC/IF.
What's the logic/rationale?

Always listening/reading/asking/learning
