Thanks for the many quick responses to my question about using "reagent
alcohol" instead of 100% ethanol.
One further question - in plant histology its quite common to use
alcohol in fixatives - i.e. FAA, FPA & Farmers. Does anybody have any
experience in using 190 proof reagent alcohol in a fixative? I know it
introduces small amounts of methanol and isopropanol into the "cocktail"
but not sure if that really matters -
Thanks for the advice/help!
