RE: Xylene Substitutes
I had great results with Propar from Anatech, no fumes, not oily, recycles
nicely and if you use the right mounting media they are ready to view pretty
quickly. Ada at Anatech was a great help in my problem solving. The only
note of caution is that Propar has zero tolerance for water so you must be
vigilant in keeping your staining system water free.
