Does anyone have ordering information for a stain called Chicago Sky
Blue(CSB)?  I just saw an article in the NOV issue of ASCP LABMEDICINE
(page 649) comparing KOH vs. CSB and, wow, is that a beautiful stain.  


The results were dramatic, with about a 25-50%  increase in the
Dermatophytes identified and about a 5X increase in the Pityriasis
versicolor identification.
