Assessing the Effectiveness of Xylene-Free Deparaffinization in Hematoxylin and Eosin Staining

Sreeganesh A S [3] | Ramjeela S [5]


Abstract: Xylene is the deparaffinizing agent used in Hematoxylin and Eosin staining. It is expensive, dangerous, and will contaminate the workplace. There's also the disposal issue. Therefore, using a low-cost and environment friendly deparaffinization replacement is highly beneficial. To assess how well xylene-free sections perform in terms of yielding sufficient H and E staining in a straightforward, economical, and faster manner in comparison to traditional H and E sections, forty paraffin blocks were taken into account, a piece was stained using the traditional H and E procedure and another using the H and E method without xylene. Slides were graded according to the following criteria: uniformity, clarity, crispness, nuclear and cytoplasmic staining.
