Hey Netters,
We are demo-ing a recycler and are using the recycled alcohol and xylene on
our tissue processor since mid-August.  The histotechs here feel that our
tissue has recently become dry and brittle and is getting worse.  Could this
be from the recycled products?  We do use brand new reagents in the last
100% and last xylene.  Has anyone else experienced this problem using
recycled products?
Thanks for any insight on this!
