Re: [Histonet] Hematoxylin & eosin storage in flammable storage cabinet

From:Rene J Buesa

  I cannot think of any incompatibility. The alcoholic eosins are neither incompatible with pure ethanol nor with xylene.
  Hematoxylin is not flammable so it would be an "overkill" but as long as you can use the space I do not see why not.
  Hope this will help you.

Hello all -

We are doing some remodeling in our laboratory and losing some storage
space where we currently store our hematoxylin and eosin. However, we are
gaining a new flammable storage cabinet.

Does anyone know of any incompatibility issues with storing Richard Allan
Hematoxylin 2, Lerner Eosin-Y (alcoholic), ethyl alcohols (95% and
absolute), and xylene together in a flammable storage cabinet?

Thank you for any thoughts.
