Hi Everyone:

I just skimmed an article in the latest Journal of Histotechnology called
"Mineral Oil:  The Best Xylene Substitute for Tissue Processing Yet?" by R.
Buesa.  Has anyone else out there tried using mineral oil/paraffin oil
(clinical and veterinary/research labs)?  The author indicated that it is
equivalent to processing tissue with xylene, along with being much safer to
use. If anyone has read the article or experienced using mineral oil I'd
love to hear what you think.
