Acetic acid at 5% is not necessarily destructive of cytoplasmic inclusions. Hermann's fluid gives excellent mitochondrial preparations if tissues are postosmicated for several days at 34° C. The mitochondria are blackened by this treatment. Mann's fluid with the addition of 5% of acetic acid gives, on postosmication, very good preparations of the ‘Golgi apparatus’ of certain cells.
