[Histonet] RE: Natural Dyes: Beet Juice
I am sure if it's true or not, but once I heard a story that in Louis
Pasteur's days they used red Port wine for staining tissues.
Definitely, more attractive than beet juice....

[Histonet] Natural Dyes: Beet Juice
I am a first year Med Lab Science student and am doing a project on
"Natural Dyes". Has anyone here ever tried using Beet juice to stain
tissues? If yes, could you please tell me something about it (like the
extraction procedure, mordant used, pH and what does it stain). Is
there any other Natural dye you would suggest me to use?
