> Dear all,
> I was having trouble staining Human embryonic palatal mesenchymal cells with multi-stain solution. My PI told me to use formic acid on the samples so that it could increase the permeability of the methyl methacrylate. I am not sure if this is enough information, but the cells were loaded on hydroxyapatite scaffolds. I have also tried aniline blue and villaneuva stain. Any information on how I can make a solution of formic acid is appreciated along with maybe other stains I could try using. Each sample was grinded to about 50 microns. Thank you.
