Pierre:  Formula for Alsever's solution, from C.H. Collins and P.M. Lyne,
Microbiological Methods, 1970, Butterworth and CO., London.  Page 199 (you
need an older book to find these things):
Dextrose 20.5 grams
Sodium chloride (NaCl): 4.2 grams
Tri sodium citrate: 8.0 grams
Citric acid: 0.55 grams
Distilled water: 1000 ml 
You're on your own in calculating the citrate concentration here.  It's
been a long time since I took organic chemistry.
