By now you’ve heard that many histology labs are recycling their xylene, alcohol, and formalin. What are some reasons to recycle solvents?

Don’t Throw Solvents Away – Recycle!

You don’t throw your car away whenever it gets dirty – you clean it. The same is true for used solvents. They’re still perfectly usable – they just need to be recycled. Recycling removes dirt and contaminants and makes them just like new. Use recycled solvents over and over again and watch the savings accumulate.

Don't throw away valuable solvent, clean it!

Save Money


Money saved on solvents is available to upgrade other equipment in the lab or for much-needed supplies. Wouldn’t it be great if that money used to buy solvents could be used for a new tissue processor, stainer, or microtome?

Start recycling your solvents and you’ll need to decide what to do with that extra money in your budget. When was the last time that happened?

Reduce Health Care Costs
