Hi there!
some time ago we bought a "Identification Kit" that included Melzer's
reagent along with Congo red, Phloxine B stain and Potassium Hydroxide
from a company called Mycro-Solutions, P.O Box 1219 Webster, NY 14580 USA
for a modest price....I do not know if the company is still there...hopefully
some one in the newsgroup may know...
Good luck
