We use Formula 83 in the clean cycle.  We do change it more often than you would xylene though.

Subject: [Histonet] Xylene substitutes for tissue processor clean cycle

Hello all,

The technician who does preventive maintenance on our LX-120 tissue processor recommended that we use xylene as the solvent in our clean cycle.
We are considering using a xylene substitue in the clean cycle and would appreciate any recommendations.

Thanks very much,
