In the world of biomaterials and hard tissue, before any plastic implant is 
processed through alcohols or any solvent, it is a good practcie to test 
the solubility of any plastic or other implant in the solvents being 
used.  The same should apply to your plastic fluorophore labelled 
beads.  It would save you a lot of grief and work, not being able to find 
them if the beads have dissolved away.
