Tissue samples should be completely submerged in 10% formalin.

Tissues should be placed in a sufficiently large container so that the sample is not cramped or folded.

Large pieces of tissue may be sectioned to ensure adequate formalin-fixing.

Very small pieces of tissue should be placed in a plastic tissue cassette or wrapped in a small piece of gauze.
