Subject: [Histonet] Glycerol jelly

I've recently started using home-made glycerol jelly as my mounting
medium---composition gelatin powder, water, and glycerol. I keep it in the
fridge at 4 degrees and melt it before use. It's great for dark field
images, but I'm worried about bacterial growth. I haven't had any problems
yet, but I was wondering if someone else out there uses this and what they
do to prevent the growth of mold, etc... and how long do you keep it before
you toss it?
