We are currently using EZ-dewax from bioGenex. It works great, is re-usable until the solution is saturated with wax and is very good for the tissues.

Dear histonetters
I would like to hear, what reagens is the most used in IHC for dewaxing the slides.
We use xylen. And there is the opinion in our lab, that xylen is superior to other xylen-substitutes. Do you agree?
For the HE-slides we use limonen, but for any delicate stain the boss demands xylen.
