[Histonet] LTP fluid with Phenol

Here is the approximate chemical make-up of LTP with Phenol. (LTP stands for Long Term Preservation)
Ethylene Glycol 4.%
Due to the presence of Ethylene Glycol, I would let the tissue set in a separate container of 10% Neutral Buffered Formalin for 24 hours before processing as usual.
I hope this helps. Terri

Subject: [Histonet] cadaver tissue processing for histology
I got some cadaver tissue floating in "LTP embalming fluid w/ phenol".
Can I put those straight into the processor? Or has to be rinsed/soaked before? If so what should I use?
My Internet searches did not bring up anything useful.
