	Have you tried Histoclear?  It is great for deparaffinizing - we
still use xylene at the end of dehydration of slides but it might be
okay for that too.  We use xylene for processing.

Hello All,

I am looking into switching to a different xylene substitute. I
currently use Slide Brite and am having problems with water in it.

Please recommend your favorite. Thank you for your response.
