Fwd: { SPAM 2 }::[Histonet] Xylene substitute problems

From:"Atoska S. Gentry"

Good morning! Please, I'm wondering which substitute are you using and what 
type tissues (CNS/extraneural or both) are you processing? For the past 20+ 
years I have been using Fisher Scientific's Tissue Clear III and have not 
experienced any problems. Although, the majority of my tissues are CNS, all 
or my processing is done using it: even the mouse brains & extraneurals. 
Best wishes. Atoska
