Does anyone know of a chemical replacement for 2,3,5-Triphenyltetrazolium chloride? This chemical has not been available for the past few months and may not be available for a few more months depending on the testing results. The government is considering a reclassification depending on the testing results so currently no one can purchase it.
I have not had good results using nitro blue tetrazolium as a replacement. I am using it as an oxidation and reduction substance to identify on fresh tissue the area where damaged tissue ends and undamaged tissue begins in research. Should someone have a procedure I would appreciate it. In my searches on Pubmed I find articles using nitro blue tetrazolium on bacteria and the likes, but not fresh tissue.
Thanks in advance,
