[Histonet] re-cycled xylene in tissue processor

If you xylene recycler works according to standard and maintained properly, the recycled xylene you obtain is of equal quality to the xylene you buy from your usual supplier.
It can be used in any and all steps of your processing and staining protocols, and there is no way it could "damage" your or any other tissue processing using xylene.
All the "difficulties" with recycled xylene are caused by improper recycling.

Hi, Has anyone had experience using re-cycled xylene in the Tissue-Tek VIP5 tissue processor for the clean cycle?
Will use of re-cycled xylene, over time, damage the processor?

Thank you,
