CBG is very reliable.  I have one of the large capacity units called: Solv
Solv.  It's set up to run xylene on one side and alcohol on the other.
Very convenient, no flushes to do.  I don't recommend recycling formalin,
to much fume exposure, testing, rebuffering, etc., but this unit will work
for formalin too.

I would like to know what everyone out in histoland is using to recycle
there solutions.  We are looking at switching out the procyclers (that are
about 10 years old) to something else.  Any Pros/Cons of current methods
would be great.  Thanks!!
