RE: [Histonet] Xylene Substitute ?


I have used the Shandon Xylene Substitute for approximately 13 years in all
aspects that I would normally use Xylene (processing, staining,
coverslipping, etc..) with the exception of the cleaning cycle on my tissue
processors and soaking off old coverslips.  We are very happy with it.  It
is odorless and not greasy feeling what-so-ever and the slides dry
relatively quickly.

Hope this helps,

Hello Everyone,
I have a question regarding the Xylene Substitute, Xylene Substitute 2 from
Shandon. What is everyone's opinion of the substitute and have you seen
anything that could be wrong with using this in every step that Xylene is
usually used?
Thanks, Becky
