Re: Buffer recipe

I'm not sure Soerensen's buffer is the proper buffer to Giemsa.  The salt
combinations in buffers can effect  staining.  Have you tried the Gurr
tablets from Merck?

Subject:    Buffer recipe

Hello to everybody!

Your suggestions for my May Grunwald - Giemsa problems were really very
helpfull. However, I stained my slides with dye solutions in Soerensen
buffer pH 6,8 but they appeared to be too blue. So I intent to use even
lower pH value (something like 6,0 or 6,2). Does anybody have a recipe for
apropriate buffer (Soerensen or anything you think) in these pH values?
Thanking you in advance
