This one caught my eye for sure.  I use Richard Allen hematoxylin for
routine and frozen sections and I haven't been having a problem getting
it nor have I heard anything about it not being available or being
substituted with something else.  I never even heard of Phoenix blue and
it would require lots of testing on my end before I'd even consider
switching.  So what's the story, is any of this true??

 Hello all, I know that this has been hot topic as of late and all was
good in my lab until yesterday when I was told that Richard Allen was no
longer shipping hematoxylin. Phoenix blue (sp?) is now being shipped as
the substitute. I was wondering if anyone is already using this product
and if they have any thoughts or helpful hints about it. Thanks a bunch-
grateful for any help!
