Is there any literature that says xylene will fade progressive staining H&E (using Surgipath Harris Hematoxylin) over a period of years? Our frozen staining series after the eosin has two 95% ROH's and six 100% and then clear in Propar. I mistakenly replaced the last three 100% ROH with xylene when I rotated the series. I'm told that anyone who knows anything about chemistry knows this is a big deal and the sections will fade. Every lab I've worked in used xylene to clear frozen sections. I understand that I messed up because this isn't our proceedure, but I don't believe I sacrificed patient care. Am I wrong?
