Does anyone know why you're supposed to make up 0.2M PBS for 
perfusion or fixation of slides (to make up neutral buffered formalin 
or paraformaldehyde) fresh?  I understand why it's important to make 
up the formalin or paraformaldehyde fresh, but what could happen to 
the PBS (unless something grows in it).  Is it really important to 
make it up fresh?
