Does anyone currently use xylene substitues in their H&E staining 
series?  If so, which one have you found to clear best?  Did you try 
several to come to that conclusion?

We have tried several in the past and are currently using RA 
ClearRite.  However, all of the sudden our pathologist thinks we can 
get better clearing.  (I think he has been looking at xylene cleared 
slides from a reference lab and remembers how much better xylene 

If anyone has had wonderful results with any brand of clearing please 
let us know.
