Re: [Histonet] Clearing through xylene & cover slipping with xylene substitute


If the data supplied with your xylene says wear gloves then you must
wear them but don't use latex gloves because they are not resistant
and some people are alergic to latex.
We used d-limonene(an product from organge skins) for about 10 years.
 The stained slides faded so we stopped using it.
