I use a excelsior and was told to always use Xylene in the cleaning cycle. Since sub is not as pure as xylene ( obviously) you could be at risk of developing paraffin clogs that the sub may not get. Using one xylene in the cleaning has not effected the odor at all in the lab. Good Luck.

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