No problem
Just make sure that you remove digestive tract as it tends to bind alizarin.

I'm in the middle of doing alcian blue/alizarin red whole skeletal chick preps and I have a question. The protocol I've chosen uses 95% ethanol for the fixative. I've already fixed in PFA.  Is it possible to continue with the protocol?  Are there any steps I should add?  Thanks, Amanda Boyce
