[Histonet] used xylene/VIP 6

Let me be as frank and cynical as possible: properly recycled xylene will produce xylene pure and "unadulterated".
Those "opinions" from "technical" services that also provide non-recycled xylene have a vested interest in making you believe that their product is the ONLY one to use. Never believe somebody who has a vested interest in selling you something when providing an opinion against something you obtain cheaper.
Just my "cynical" opinion (usually right on these issues).
Otherwise, provide scientific proof to the contrary!
I used recycled xylene in my 3 VIP and added pure xylene when my reserves were exhausted or depleted by use.

We have the VIP 6 and really like it..user friendly and faster TAT.

We have been having rotary valve concerns within our Leica Peloris tissue processor and the technician as well as Leica technical services both feel it is because we have been using recycled xylene in the cleaning cycle.  I was always told that when recycling xylene, one gets a "pure" product back, which I always found hard to believe.  We do use recycled xylene in routine tissue processing, rotating between new and recycled as we change the reagents and rotate.
