Sorry for the delayed reply.   There was an article in The Journal of
Histotechnology a few years ago evaluating the various xylene substitutes on
the market.  Xylene Substitute (now called Histosolve) came out a favorably.
We use this on our tissue processors and are pleased with the results.  It
performs much better than the limonene substitutes.  Limonene substitutes
have also been associated with respiratory problems.  Clear-Rite 3 from
Richard Allen is also very good.  I would say that they are comparable.
