Yes.  Reagent alcohol is 90% ethanol, 5% IPA, and 5% methanol.  Tissues and
staining don't notice the difference.

I have both 95% and absolute ethyl alcohol. A resident gave me some reagent
absolute alcohol to use for his project.  I need to know if I can
interchange reagent with ethanol for processing and staining.  Any
information will be greatly appreciated.
