Yes, used it for years. It works in xylene, absolute alcohol and xylene substitutes.

Subject: [Histonet] Use of molecular sieve beads 

Hello histonetters,
I have just read an article about molecular sieve beads being used in
xylene to extract the water, and therefore extending the life of the
xylene indefinitely.  This article was given to me by a cytologist. She
came across it on the cytology equivalent to the Histonet. So my
question is, has anybody in histology used this method to keep xylene
moisture free? And if so, do it really extend the life of the xylene
Any and all information is greatly appreciated!
