Histo-Clear / Histo-Clear II
Histo-Clear, distilled essential oils (food grade) and Histo-Clear II, a mixture of aliphatic hydrocarbons and distilled essential oils, (food grade) are excellent non-toxic clearing agents replacing xylene.
Histo-Clear is a Xylene substitute (a d-Limonene). The use of Histo-Clear in the laboratory means no longer having to breathe xylene when preparing histological sections. Distilled from oranges, carefully purified, and stabilized, Histo-Clear is one of the safest clearing agents available.
