RE: [Histonet] xylene substitute


We have used the Thermo brand (used to be called Histosolve, now just Xylene
Substitute) for the last 16 years.  We love it!!

We recently changed from xylene to a substitute called Propar from Anatech.
Easy transition, and actually have found specimens to not be as "dry" as
when we used xylene.

Hello Everyone,

I know that this has been asked before. But, what is the best xylene
substitute for surgical specimens.

Thank you
