Subject: [Histonet] xylene substitutes

Does anyone currently use xylene substitues in their H&E staining series?
If so, which one have you found to clear best?  Did you try several to come
to that conclusion?

We have tried several in the past and are currently using RA ClearRite.
However, all of the sudden our pathologist thinks we can get better
clearing.  (I think he has been looking at xylene cleared slides from a
reference lab and remembers how much better xylene

If anyone has had wonderful results with any brand of clearing please let us
