From:Sue Barnes <SBarnes@elch.org>

Our lab is trying to go with a xylene substitute for both processing and
staining.  at the present time we are trying Clear Rite by Richard Allen.
The processing appears to be fine but we are having problems with the
staining.  Does anyone have a staining protocol using clear rite?  Could you
please send the protocol along with the changing reagent cycles that are
working for you.  We never had these problems with xylene.

We are also wanting to switch to a formalin substitute.  which one is
working the best?

Does anyone know who makes Bio Clear.  this one was suggested to us.

We have a Renaissance processor and a Leica Auto stainer XL.
Thanks for any help.
