I am doing plaque assays for polio virus. After I remove the agar
from my 6-well TC plates, I would like to stain them with a
solution of crystal violet. Does any one have a recipe for CV
for use in a plaque assay? I have tried several microbiology
manuals and each one seems to use a slightly different mixture.
The tissue culture manuals that I have do not even mention CV.
Thanks in advance for any and all help.
