RE: Trouble Shooting
I would have put the tissue back in xylene to remove the paraffin, then
absolute alcohol, xylene and paraffin again. the tissue would have been a
little crisp, but salvageable.

We had a problem with our tissue processing last week and
they are still arguing about what should and shouldn't have been
happened was, our MLA used methyl alcohol instead of xylene when she
the solutions. So it was methyl alcohol instead of xylene right
paraffin. It was her fault for not reading the label but couldn't
blame her as the containers look alike. Anyways, we didn't know at
that that was what happened but we noticed the tissues were hard and
on the edges but soft in the middle. Was there something we could
to save the tissues? Please help us settle the arguments!
Thanks a lot in advance.
