Our docs are also insistent on B-5.  We have a no heat recipe if you want I
will send it to you. There are several vendors that sell B-5.

		We have a procedure for making B5 fixative that calls for
heating the water
		to 90 C.  Could anyone tell me the reason why ?  Would
overheating cause
		the mercury to precipitate?  Our docs are set on using B5.
Does anyone
		know where to commercially purchase this fixative.  Thanks
in advance.
