Re: [Histonet] pHing of eosin

From:Gayle Callis

If you are buying eosin Y, already made up, check the MSDS, and the pH, it 
may be adjusted correctly.  I know that this is the case for Richard Allan 
Eosin Y solution.  If you are making up eosin y from the dry dye, then the 
recipe is (Hrapchak and Sheehan)

eosin y   0.5g
95% ethanol  50 ml
glacial acetic acid    1 drop

If you are adjusting already made up, use acetic acid.
