Yes, it is a typo that keeps being repeated.

Sirius red F3B is CI# 35780 or Direct red 80.

Dear Colleagues,


I just want to clarify this issue.  IS there such a thing as Sirius red
F3B (C.I. 35782)?  I have tried to find a source to buy it and have only
been able to find stains without a C.I. # or a C.I. # of 35780.  When I
Goggle this stain, the following sentence appears verbatim over and


Collagen is birefringent when stained with Sirius red F3B (C.I. 35782).


Is this a typo that just gets repeated?  Is it a stain that is no longer
manufactured? Does anyone know?
