Recommendations & Guidelines

Recommendations for Chemicals and Reagents

rec-girl
  • Tissue should be fixed immediately after removal from the body.
  • Tissue should be cut to less than 5 mm in thickness for best results.
  • The volume of fixative should be 10-20 times the tissues.
  • Formalin penetrates most tissue at a rate of 0.5mm per hour.
  • Heat, agitation and vacuum will all speed up the rate of penetration of formalin.
  • Always use high quality reagents to maximize performance.
  • 10% Buffered Formalin should be used for long term tissue storage.
  • Tissue should be no larger than 5mm in thickness.
  • Always take into account the thickness of your tissue when determining station times.
  • Avoid heat during dehydrating and clearing to reduce the possibility of over-processing.
  • The use of vacuum is always encouraged during processing.
  • Establish a reagent rotation schedule suited to your lab.
  • Always use high quality reagents to maximize performance.
  • A hydrometer is a practical, easy way to determine when to rotate or replace alcohols.
  • Use Xylene, not a substitute, in the cleaning cycle.
