General notes edit

Immediately after sampling, tissue samples should generally be placed in vessels with the correct fixing solution, with a volume that allows them to lie freely in the solution.[1] The standard fixation fluid is generally 10% neutral buffered formalin, which is roughly equivalent to 4% formaldehyde.[2]
