Just a word of warning if your try the recent protocol posted, pet-ether 
is very flammable.  If you use a Waring blender to homogenize your 
tissue, be careful that you don't go "over the top" and allow ether to 
spill on the base of the blender.  The electric motor produces a spark 
that can ignite the ether and you get a spectacular benchtop fire!  Trust 
me, I've seen it happen and it's worth missing!

Good luck,  -Guy
