Prolonged storage of fixative for electron microscopy: effects on tissue preservation for diagnostic specimens.

Abstract

Prolonged storage of Karnovsky's fixative, at both 4 and -20 degrees C, is possible in the diagnostic electron microscopy setting. Ultrastructural detail was not compromised in specimens processed in fixative that had been stored for 6 months. Evidence of smooth muscle and neuroendocrine differentiation was present in the form of actin filaments/dense… (More)
