I have found a suitable replacement for xylene but that is the easy part.


I now have been directed to start looking for a formalin substitute. I am
not aware of anyone that actually uses the stuff (probably for good reason).
Does anyone know of or have any experience with these alternative (inferior)
products? Does anyone have any experience with the validation (headache)
required to actually replace formalin? I can hardly wait. Thanks.
