We prepare our calcein for mouse injections as follows:  Dissolve 0.219 
grams NaCl in 25 ml distilled water.  Add 0.500 grams sodium bicarbonate 
and stir until dissolved.  Add 0.250g calcein powder slowly while gently 
heating above solution (be careful - it can foam up).  Stir until all 
calcein dissolves.  Filter sterilize.  Mouse dose of calcein is 30 mg/kg.
