In a previous job we used Pro-Par and recycled it too for many years. I don't know if I would label it a drawback, but I felt the dehydrating steps after eosin required changing more often then if using xylene. There were days when we would get the dreaded bleeding eosin. Keep your reagents fresh and you shouldn't have any problems. We were hand coverslipping back then.

Subject: [Histonet] Pro-Par

Hi Folks,


Just curious...anyone using Pro-Par care to share an opinion?  Have
considered it off and on over the years and now wondering what folks
think.  Also, anyone using it with tape coverslippers?  Maybe this has
been asked and I wasn't keeping up with the thread.
