Hi all,

what is the best way to keep eosinY/phloxine mixture long term
(aqueous sloution used for h&E)?
I use the solution sporadically, and hate it when i get to the bottle
and there is an alien life form evolving in it. Thymol seems no
deterrrent. Could I aliquot it and freeze it? Autoclave and store in
fridge?  any thoughts?

Best regards
