We have been using recycled xylene for years and have found that it only present a problem on the clean cycle of the processor.
Everywhere we have not experienced a problem, so we use new xylene on the cleaning cycle.

Subject: [Histonet] Recycled Xylene

Does anyone out there have any problems with using recycled xylene to  clean the tissue processor?   I was just told that we should not use recycled xylene to clean the tissue processor.  How about using recycled xylene for either processing or staining?
