Greetings all 

We are trying to rehydrate FFPE samples for protein
extraction (I know it is tricky) and the first on the protocol call for
wash with Xylene to remove the paraffin. The problem is I am not clear
about which xylene as there are at least 3 different isomers (orto, meta
and para). 

Anyone knows which one is used? 

Many thanks
