Hi Gary,
We recenty had a change over to a substitute and went with the aliphatic
Propar by Anatech.  Easy transition, very low oder, docs didn't notice
(big plus).  We did add an extra container on the stainer when
depariffinizing, and on the processor, we have 3 containers of the
substitute.  We are also able to recycle it.  Works well with hand
coverslipping media also.  You'll be happy with the change.

We presently use Xylene in our processor.  We will be moving to a Xylene
substitute.  We are a small lab and still hand cover all of our slide. 
the cover slip line we do use Sugipath's Sub-x Xylene substitute and are
planning on using Sub-x.
Can anyone in the group fill me in on their experience with a change
to a Xylene substitute.
Thank you
