RE: [Histonet] GRAC-TP gravity recycler

From:"Elizabeth Chlipala"


We use this recycler and have had been using it for about a year now.
It works fine for us.  We place our used 100% and 95% from the stainer,
misc. special stains and tissue processor and get out recycled 95%.  You
can not put any alcohol that has xylene in it.  So your
deparaffinization alcohols can not go into the recycler.  We are a small
lab and we just replaced our first filter after a year.  I only order
100% alcohol from a vendor and we rely on the recycler to provide us
with 95% alcohol.  We have a hydrometer that we use to test the recycled
product and adjust accordingly.  It works quickly.  We like it or else I
would not have ordered a second filter.

Does anyone out there on Histonet use this recycler? What type of
testimony can I get about it?
