I use Citrisolv as a xylene substitute, and have had no problems with my
immunohistochemistry slides.

  Good morning everyone. Our safety committee is all set to switch us to a
xylene substitute. In order to head them off at the pass, I'd like any info
you kind people can provide concerning the impact xylene sub's would have on
IPX as well as on routine tissue preparation; processing, staining, special
stains, well you know, the whole nine yards!
  Thanks so much for taking the time to read this email....
