Subject: lithium carbonate
My question is, for an H&E stain when making up your lithium carbonate
solution after your Hematox dip, I am using a saturated aqueous lithium
carbonate solution with 1 gram of lithium into 100 ml of ( this is the
question ) do I use distilled H2O, or 100 % EtOH? If my memory serves me
after many years of working in the lab and smelling all of the chemicals, I
would use EtOH, is this correct.
I would appreciate your comments.
Food for thought, I do not want to use pre-made clarifier.
