RE: [Histonet] Xylene Substitute, Rebecca

From:"Joyce Cline"

I am using Formula 83 and the recycler. Coverslipping with Formula 83 is
good and the slides can be filed in 8-10 days. Formula 83 recycles
really well also. Formula 83 is more comparable to Xylene then any other
Xylene substitute that I have used. I had used Clearite 3 for over 15

Subject: [Histonet] Xylene Substitute

I know this topic has been on here before, but of course I paid little
attention as it wasn't on top of my busy list!  And I rarely converse
the histonet, but definately watch as the conversations move along.

I work in a small research lab, but recently got a call from CBG Biotech
try their xylene substitute, Formula 83 for free.

I have only ever used xylene, but am fairly new to histologic procecures
I am considering an alternative that is less toxic.

Has anyone tried Formula 83 or have any other substitutes they can

I will try my hardest to post the results of my testing so that everyone
know.  I think once I get the sample in I can test things fairly
quickly.  I
would like to sample more than one though, just to have a comparisson.
