RE: [Histonet] IHC turn around times

From:"Dasso, Greg \(staff\)"

Potassium Ferrocyanide, in its non-anhydrous form, is as a trihydrate.

The formula for your salt should be :K4Fe(CN)6.3H2O.

The dot between the (CN)6 and the 3H2O simply means that there are 3 "waters of hydration" in the stable salt.
