Look through the materials and methods section of a few papers to find
recipes (or references).  Some specific work may require special
solutions, but there are plenty of recipes for general work.  All of
mine are in the lab (I am home, now).  But aren't there any people in
your institution experienced in this work that can help?  And aren't
there any people in physiology that have tons of recipes?

There are recipes available at


which should do it for you.
