The cloudy alcohol 'test' tends to suggest it's contaminated with clearing

   Does  anyone  have  any experience with the CBG recycler and the Leica
   tissue  processor? My recycled alcohol seems to have clear rite in it.
   The  rep  says  it could be fat from the types of tissue processed and
   not  clear  rite at all. The recycled alcohol turns cloudly when mixed
   with  water.  I  am  relatively  sure there isnt any clear rite in the
   alcohol  before  recycling, but I tested the alcohol before and after,
   and i seems to always be contaminated. I should think it couldnt be my
   processor (at least hope not) Thanks for any input.
