Subject:  Cellusolve Help!

Is there anyone who uses the product cellusolve or anything like it?
Cellusolve is supposed to be made by Union Carbide and is an excellent
solvent for removing celloidin from celloidin coated stained slides prior
to clearing and mounting.  It is also supposed to be more gentle than ether
alcohol. I would be using this on temporal bone specimens in
immunohistochemistry.  I would really appreciate any imformation on the
product,  where to purchase it, how to use it, etc.
Thank you very much,
