Akemi = According to the Biological Stain Commission, dye often get better
with age. If you can run a control slide with a stain that uses the dye and
it is positive, GLP regs allow you to put an expiration date 1 year from
that time on the dye. You can keep doing this procedure and redate the dye
for a long time. Chemicals, on the other hand, can outdate. Your best bet
is to dispose of them properly.
