Dear C Jones,

Is it possible your absolute ethanol is not absolutely absolute?

I have had absolute alcohol that was more like 95 - 98%. Is there any sign

water in the first xylene station?

We have 2 Leica TP1050's and have not had a carry-over problem, or any

other processing problems.

Did the service people check and clean the selector plate/ manifold plate

in the rotary valve assembly? I have heard that it is possible for things

formalin salts to build up and cause small contamination type faults.

Hope you find the cause, David.
