The pH or Alizarin Red is very critical so I would try and keep it as close to the recommended pH as possible.  Also, be careful when you wash the section/cells with PBS or something as this really mucks it up... may be obvious but I found out the hard way!!
Good luck!

Hi all,

The protocol for Alizarin red S to identify calcium suggest a solution
pH 4.1 to 4.3.  The Alizarin solution of our provider has a 4.5 to 5
pH.  Could I use it, or is critical the pH?
