Abstract: A variant Golgi technique was developed that consisted of substituting osmium tetroxide with formaldehyde as the initial fixative in intracardiac perfusion, along with the addition of glacial acetic acid to the chromating fluid. This procedure avoids disposal of dangerous waste substances into the environment. Other advantages include 1) reduction of cost, danger to lab workers, and risk of disruption of the tissue slices during their handling by eliminating the osmium tetroxide, 2) clear tissue background, 3) greater quantity of impregnated neurons than in the classical procedure, with distinct morphological details easily identified even in gross sections and 4) reduction in processing time. © 1992 Informa UK Ltd All rights reserved: reproduction in whole or part not permitted.
