Fwd: RE: Gurr's Buffer and Gurr's R-66

From:"Dr. Ian Montgomery." <ian.montgomery@bio.gla.ac.uk>

<html> <x-tab>        </x-tab>Think you might have a wee problem here. Gurr's improved Giemsa stain, R.66 was produced by George T. Gurr, a company which no longer exists. Whether anyone still makes this variant of Giemsa I don't know. From his book, Biological Staining Methods, seventh edition, 1963, George Gurr writes that "this solution should be obtained ready prepared." So it looks as if George had it in his own recipe book and it wasn't published, although I would be interested if a reference was available.<br> <x-tab>        </x-tab>Gurr's buffer, nothing in his book, but from the techniques using R.66 it looks as if it is simply distilled water buffered to pH 7.2.<br> Ian.  <br><br> <br> <blockquote type=cite class=cite cite>Date: Thu, 24 May 2001 16:46:31 -0700<br> From: Robert Embree <REmbree@USLABS.net><br> Subject: RE: Gurr's Buffer and Gurr's R-66<br> To: "'HistoNet Server'" <histonet@pathology.swmed.edu><br><br> Does anyone know where I can purchase Gurr's Buffer and Gurr's R-66?  Does<br> anyone have a phone number for BioMedical Specialites, I was given their<br> name but can't find a number or web-site?<br><br> Thank You,<br><br> Robert </blockquote> <x-sigsep><p></x-sigsep> <font color="#0000FF">Dr. Ian Montgomery,<br> West Medical Building,<br> University of Glasgow,<br> Glasgow,<br> G12 8QQ.<br> Tel: 0141 339 8855.  Extn:6602.<br> Fax: 0141 330 2923<br> e-mail: ian.montgomery@bio.gla.ac.uk</font></html>
