RE: [Histonet] Eosin, phloxine and OG?

From:"Bill Sinai"

I haven't heard of Orange G being used before.

But we use an aqueous solution of 1% eosin yellowish and 1% erythrosin B in
0.25% Sodium Hydrogen Carbonate and 2% Magnesium sulphate.  We have used
this for more than 40 years with great results all the time.  Depending on
the pH of your local water it may require a wash for anywhere between 10
secs to 1 min.

Subject: [Histonet] Eosin, phloxine and OG?

Hello everyone,
Say, is anyone familiar with an eosin/phloxine that mixes into it some OG
(for H+E staining)?
The conversation came up recently to "amp" the three shades of red in H+E
staining.  It was the first time I'd ever heard of adding Orange G into
eosin/phloxing solution. Are there any labs doing this?
