Histological samples were fixed in 1X Histochoice tissue fixative
(Amresco, Solon, OH) for 24 hours and embedded in paraffin.
A tissue fixative
that protects macromolecules (DNA, RNA, and protein) and histomorphology in clinical samples.
This tissue fixative
is infused into the hair cortex at very high temperatures.
Its potential to act as an electrophile and act with macromolecules such as DNA, RNA and protein to form reversible adducts or irreversible cross-links (International Agency for Research on Cancer, Lyon, 1995) makes it as a conventional tissue fixative
(particularly in cadaver's fixation).
Pathology laboratory: Formaldehyde (a carcinogen and mutagen), used as a tissue fixative
We are a bit surprised by the comments of Mr Titford regarding our article on the "Comparison of Formalin-Free Fixatives" published in Archives of Pathology & Laboratory Medicine (1) As the author of this letter stated, we are also aware of the fact that most laboratories in the world use formalin as a tissue fixative
