Just a heads-up on Light Green Dye.... There has been
a problem with Light Green Dye for the past several
years. It ain't what it used to be!! Atleast, that
was some inside info I was given from some reputable
sources from the Biological Stains Commission.
As a solution, I developed a Fast-Light Green
Counterstain for Biocare's Masterpiece Line of Special
Stains. My formulation is proprietary, but you can
purchase it from Biocare. I used it for the PAS/Lt
Green for Fungus Stain and it looked beautiful. Don't
worry--I don't getting any $$ from them since leaving.
