From:"Smith, Joyce (FH)"

Does anybody know where one can purchase a Mariano S. H. di Fiore book
titled "Atlas of Normal Histology"?  We really need it for our students.

I have a Johns Hopkins eosin recipe, it is as follows:

Eosin Y  18gms
Phloxine B  7.5gms
Biebrich Scarlet  1.5gms
Distilled Water  2850 ml
Absolute Alcohol  750 ml

1: Dissolve all the dyes in the distilled water.
2: Add the absolute alcohol and continue stirring for at least 1
This will make up a volume of 3610 ml, I add about two or three drops of 
glacial acetic acid to a 500 ml volume before staining tissue (this 
enhances the stain), you may not like the intensity but you can omit the 
acetic acid if you like.  I hope this is helpful to you.
