I do remember tergitol. We used this at University of Chicago. I can fax it
to you if you like. It works great.

Subject:    Tergitol for Acid Fast Organisms

Another question for us old folks since there are some that are so old that
we can't remember...

Does anyone have a procedure using Tergitol for Acid Fast Organisms? Our
works fine on the tissue control slide, but we haven't had a positive in
some time...and we are all beginning to question this. Can anyone remember
using Terigtol or is there another method anyone can recommend besides the
AFB stain???
