It is probably not necessary to leave the slides for those times in the
alcohol and xylene. However, we don't have the problem of losing the
x-gal staining on tissue sections or even in the processor for stained
whole mounts for paraffin embedding. We use the x-gal staining protocol
recommended by Lobe, et al (Developmental Biology 208; 281-292) and
counterstain in nuclear fast red, rinse in water, and dehydrate, clear
and mount as usual with no loss of staining.
