I'd like to meet the person willing to part with his red port wine collection in the interest of science. now that is dedication! 
can't think of any other use for beet juice. might definitely be worth a try.

   I am sure if it's true or not, but once I heard a story that in Louis
   Pasteur's days they used red Port wine for staining tissues.

   Definitely, more attractive than beet juice....

   [Histonet] Natural Dyes: Beet Juice

   I  am  a  first year Med Lab Science student and am doing a project on
   "Natural  Dyes".  Has anyone here ever tried using Beet juice to stain
   tissues? If yes, could you please tell me something about it (like the
   extraction  procedure,  mordant  used,  pH and what does it stain). Is
   there any other Natural dye you would suggest me to use?
