Greetings all,

I am having a difficult time trying to make methacarn fixative.  I have 
searched the list archives and found a posting in May 2005 from someone 
that was having the same problem I am facing: a white precipitate 
forming.  In one of the responses to his posting it was suggested to 
use glass only (pipets, vials etc...).  I have done that, and still the 
precipitate forms.  I have also used all new reagents (chloroform, 
methanol, acetic acid) and still the precipitate forms.  Does anyone 
have some more suggestions as to what is going wrong?  Thanks, Kathy
