Title: Butylacetate instead of xilen
Post by: PAndres18 on July 10, 2018, 03:47:07 PM
Hello everybody, I work in a laboratory for pathologists in Argentina, and we have an Thermo Scientific STP 120 automatic spin tissue processor. We are using xilene as the clearing agent, with two baths of xilene, 1 hour each. We are thinking of replacing xilene with butylacetate, but we donīt know how long we have to program each bath in order to have a good result. Does anybody work with this reagent? Thanks in advance for your cooperation.
