RE: Alcian Blue availability in the UK

From:"Smith, Allen"

Alcian blue is available from Anatech Ltd. (Battle Creek, Michigan, USA;
1-800-262-8324) or from Sinoera Tech in Shanghai.
For most purposes, colloidal iron or zirconyl hematoxylin (Biotechnic and
Histochemistry 75:124-131; Micron 33:95-103) can be substituted for alcian
blue. Colloidal iron is slightly more sensitive; zirconyl hematoxylin is
slightly less sensitive.

Subject: Alcian Blue availability in the UK

Hi all,

I'm having trouble getting hold of Alcian Blue in the UK, a number of
suppliers have said that it is no longer being made and that they are trying
to find a new source.

Does anyone know who may have some in stock?

Many thanks and a happy and peaceful New Year to all.
