Explanation:
Думаю, что у этого нового фиксатора еще нет русского названия

Prefer is considerably faster than formalin, and will produce superior results in a conveniently short time. Small biopsies will fix in 45-60 minutes, larger ones in 1-2 hours. General surgical specimens no thicker than 4 mm will fix adequately in 2-4 hours. Allow longer time when fixing gross specimens. Notice the exquisite detail in the gastric biopsy (Figure at left, Gastric biopsy fixed 45 minutes in Prefer). Basement membranes and cell membranes are clearly defined. Nuclear patterns are good.

Prefer's mild acidity accelerates penetration and chemical fixation. For fatty specimens, we recommend that you make an alcoholic version of Prefer from our Prefer Concentrate. This can be used in one or more stations of the tissue processor
Immunohistochemical staining is so much easier with Prefer than with neutral buffered formalin, even after weeks of fixation.
