RE: mercurochrome replacement

From:Sharon Osborn <topper2u@earthlink.net>

Try using alcoholic eosin (or eosin with phloxine if desired) to mark
these.  It goes through the processing well and does not interfere with
routine staining.  also allows one to see these critters during cutting. 
Works as the mercurochrome has.  sharon osborn, san francisco
