Gayle:

1.	No counterstain on my Steiner and Steiner either. We are partial to
the golden color too.
2.	We have a few pair of Dur-Strip Dissecting Forceps that may serve
your purpose. Stainless 8 " non-locking, L shaped, but the tips are
serrated. Shandon/Lipshaw, item #1908. 1(800)547-7429.

	Questions:

	1.  Do people counterstain the Steiner and Steiner, if so,
suggestions?
	    I'm happy with golden color contrast to black organisms, asking
	    for someone else.

	2.  We are trying to locate Dumont forceps, larger (6 - 8") with an
	    slanted L shaped tip, serrated.  All my catalogs show Dumonts
for
	    EM or microdissection use, and we need larger forceps than the
micro
	    fine tips.  The curve is not so rounded on the forceps we need.


	Thanks,
	Gayle Callis
