I tried these dehydrating beads and really didn't like them (okay, let the 
flaming begin, I'm sure I just POed someone. This time, I'm not working 
haaaaaaaa) Sorry, I tried them at two different labs and wasn't really 
impressed. You have to keep track of how many trays (or slides) go through 
before you need to rotate them and let them dry out completely before 
reusing them again. I would try the gravity method like Mickey suggested.

I know this was discussed in the recent past, but, what are the pros and
cons of using these and how much do they save on xylene usage?  Also,
how does one get into the archives of Histonet to view past responses if
those of you who already answered do not want to post an answer agin
(and I do understand not rehashing old subjects!!)

I cannot say enough how VERY much I appreciate the use of this resource
for problem solving in the histology world!!  The networking is
invaluable and I want to thank everyone out there for the quick
responses and helpful information on my last post concerning automated
microtomes!!!!!! Histotechs are a truly a CUT above the rest!!
