Most recent revisions of regulatory guidelines for testing effects of chemicals on reproduction recommend Bouin's fluid (BF) or a "comparable fixative" instead of formalin to preserve the morphologic detail of testes for histopathological evaluation. However, picric acid in BF is a health and safety hazard, as well as a laboratory waste disposal problem. Furthermore, use of BF is labor intensive, requiring multiple alcohol rinses to remove picric acid for optimum preservation and… CONTINUE READING
