[Adverse effect of prolonged formalin fixation on DNA ploidy in paraffin-embedded tissue].

Abstract

From retrospective analysis of 174 formalin fixed, paraffin-embedded, HCC tissue samples, the possible correlation was investigated between the CV determined by FCM and the duration of formalin fixation. An adverse effect of prolonged formalin fixation on CV and fluorescence intensity in liver tissue was investigated prospectively in samples from 4 patients.
