RE: Plummage Dye - DownUnder?!?!

From:"Georger, Mary" <>

Hello Melissa,
Just a thought, but how about using a tissue marking dye such as the ones we
use to mark surgical margins before processing tissue. They are available
from a number of sources and withstand alcohol's and xylene, so water should
be no problem. 
Keep us posted!
