Dear Katie,
treat all solutions as being light sensitive at all times. Myeloreoxidase
Rgts. are best kept in the fridge even buffers. I use a stabiliity of 3-6
months and like you add the peroxide just before use.
All haematoxylin solutions once filtered are usually free from further ppte.
exceptions would be Harris.
