Hi Ana,

        We use Para/Gard which is made by TBS.  It is a great product and 
can be purchased through VWR.

[Histonet] Paraffin cleaning product


I was wondering if anyone could suggest me a product to clean residues of 
paraffin in microtome, bench, tools... When working in Europe I was using 
a product "SafeSolv" from Labonord. In my actual lab at San Diego, they 
cannot order from this company and I'm not aware about products that I 
could find here. I search on the web "safesolv" and it comes several 
things, one is this link http://www.washwax.com/fc_purchase.html, could 
you please let me know if any of this products will do the job? I could 
use xylen to clean but microtome it's not on the hood to be using xylen 
and I don't have a easy access to a hood for this purpose. 

Thanks a lot,
