Thanks to those that responded to my fluorescein question (is
fluorescein removed by xylene?).  I had two conflicting responses and
that brings up a very logical (I should have seen this before...)
question: if fluorescein is removed by xylene, am I not "dead in the
water" right out of the box although I do use Sub-X on the processor
(but xylene in the stain line).  Is THAT a factor (the Sub-X) as it's a
XYL substitute?
