     I have used Clear rite 3 from Richard Allen for 15 years or more, I
now use Formula 83 from CBG (recycling) and it is almost like Xylene.
     I use B+ as a B5 replacement, the path's are satisfied with it. B+
comes from BBC Biochemical.

  I was just wondering if anyone new of any mercury (B5 fixative)
alternatives, and if they will keep the pathologist happy? Also any
xylene alternatives that work really well?
  Thank you,
