[Histonet] 200 proof alcohol?

I¹m trying to buy some alcohol for both histology and molecular biology
protocols. But I¹m having some difficult getting ³molecular biology grade²
100% ethanol. The hospital I work at sells 200 proof ethanol, but can¹t say
anything about the quality. Since it¹s 200 proof, is that basically the same
as molecular biology grade? How about histology grade? I seem to recall
using hospital provided ethanol for molecular biology experiments in my
postdoc, so I think it should be ok.

Any advice is appreciated!
