About a year ago I bought a bottle of phenol from the Gibco on-site freezer
on my floor.  It was called "Redline" and contained a fucsia-colored additive
(and anti-oxidant?).  I loved this stuff, since it really helped
visualizing small phenol bubbles which occasionally pop into the aqeuous
phase during pipetting.  Unfortunately, Gibco stopped selling this stuff.
Does anyone know what the additive was or other useful additives? (I already
know about 8-hydroxyquinoline).
