We use Clear-Rite 3 (Richard Allan Scientific 6901) from Fisher Scientific in our VIP processor and for staining.  I am not familiar with Permount, but we use Richard-Allan Mounting Medium (4111; also available from Fisher Scientific) that is toluene based - works great in combination with Clear-Rite 3.

Hi all!
I'm looking for recommendations for a xylene substitute for our processing and 
staining. We have two VIP's and a Leica stainer. We use Permount for 
coverslipping (manually with glass). Does anyone use a xylene substitute 
that you would recommend for this combination?
Thank you!
