RE: jars and storage
I have used multi-purpose polyethylene containers(check with Fisher) for manual stain set-ups. Including the xylene steps. They never dissolved, only swelled a little.

Subject: jars and storage
I've suddenly been assigned a student with Storage Needs. Xylene
resistant containers (which usually means glass), about 625 of them.
I searched the histonet archives, and got Industrial Containers &
Supply in Salt Lake City, UT, but I need to find more sites.
Specifically we need smallish to medium sized containers in which
specimens can be stored in xylene for extended periods (meaning
air tight lids) *and* that are cheap.
Unfortunately, I don't find this in the archives. Anyone in histoland
know of a supplier of such containers?
