Hey folks,
I am shopping for a diff-quick kit.  However, all I really need is the fixative.  Generally, there is a blue stain (triarylmethane) added to the methanol in the fixative solution.  I have a giant jug of lab grade methanol.  What would I lose by using methanol alone compared to the fixative solution included in a diff-quick kit?
