Shelf life of Saf-O

From:Jerry Chi-Yuan Hu <>


I just mixed myself two aqueous solutions of 0.1% Safranin O and 0.05%
Fast Green.  I keep them in amber glass bottles, away from the light,
since I suspect that they can photobleach.  I was wondering if anybody
knows how long these stains can keep this way - I did not see an
expiratory date on the bottles that the dry dyes came in.  

Thank you for your help.
