Dear Yeasties,
	Just another note about Phloxin B.  I got out my original 
reference to Phloxin(e) B.  This reference : Middelhoven, W.J., 
Broekhuizen, B. and van Eijk, J.  J. Bacteriol 128(3) p851-852 (1976) 
states "The dye phloxine B (tetrabromotetrachloro-fluorescein also named 
acid red 92 or magdala red) ..."  My bottle of Phloxin B from Sigma 
also says "magdala red technical".  It doesn't really matter, but be aware 
that some sources do refer to Phloxin B as magdala red.
Sincerely,

Mike Moser                                             Tel: 206-543-5354
