I tried it in a previous job in Virginia. No negative impact on

Dear Pathology People,
If anyone has used Formula 83 Clearing Solvent, I'd like to hear your
I just received a flyer on it and it sounds of interest. Not toxic,
dissolves paraffin 3 x faster than xylene substitutes, etc.

I'd particularly like to know if it had any impact on your subsequent
IHC testing.
