Re: [Histonet] cloth yellow stain

From:Bryan Llewellyn

Dyes have many synonyms and individual dyes have their day in the sun then 
fade in popularity, as it were.  I suggest you go to 
(The Society of Dyers and Colourists in the UK) who publish the Colour Index 
and send an e-mail asking if they have any information.  If anyone would 
know what it is (or was) they would.  I do know they have responded 
favourably to specific requests like this in the past.

If you do find out, please let us know, my curiosity is aroused.

Subject: [Histonet] cloth yellow stain

Greetings Histonetters:

In an exhaustive inventory of laboratory chemicals we have discovered an old 
bottle of 'Cloth Yellow' stain powder, manufactured by Chroma.  Efforts to 
get an MSDS from Chroma have failed.  Nobody here knows what this was even 
used for.

Would anyone care to offer any histological uses for this stain?
