200 proof is 200 proof, can't get any purer than that. Of course, I would 
take the taste test first. Green olives stuffed with Feta cheese goes good.

Subject: [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!
