processing mouse tissues

From:Michelle Peiffer <>

Hi all,

Does anyone have a foolproof processing schedule for mouse tissue, which
they could share with me?  We are a research lab embedding mouse liver,
kidney, pancreas and brain for IHC.  

I want to avoid using xylene, it gives me a wicked headache, and our
ventilation is not adequate for all these automatic processing machines to
be filled with xylene.  I am currently using histosolve, but I would be
interested to know what substitutes others are using and if there is any

Thanks in advance.
