 We already use the kit from Sigma but it is the 1% Uranyl Nitrate waste
that is the issue.  I will check with Newcommer to see if their kit will

Thanks you!

What if you but the Sigma kit that has the 1% solution in it already?

Does anyone have a protocol for the Steiner and Steiner stain that does
not use Uranyl Nitrate?  Our EHS department will not allow us to order
this chemical anymore because it is too expensive to dispose of.  If
anyone has any methods of disposal that are not too pricey I would be
interested in them as well.
Thank you very much,
