AND USE OF DYE SOLUTIONS
USING PREPARED SOLUTIONS
Dye Solutions Stored in Plastic Containers
PN 30-0624 Reagent Dye Solution 4 x 1 gallon
PN 30-0627 Reference Dye Solution 1 quart
PREPARED REAGENT DYE SOLUTION
Before opening containers or using dropper bottles after several hours of non-use, invert the bottle once or twice. This remixes the water droplets which forms above the liquid level. The Reagent Dye Solution in the Carboy Dispensor should be shaken to remix the droplets formed in it.
After opening Reagent, Reference or dropper bottles, wipe off both the bottle neck and inside the cap with a tissue before pouring the solution.
Before recapping, rewipe the bottle neck with a tissue after the solutions are poured. This prevents dye accumulation and crystallization. Serious errors can result if the dye crystallizes in the bottle threads on later mixes into the solutions.
When not in use, keep bottles capped and vent closed on Reagent Dye Dispensor. Solutions not used from a dropper bottle within a week or two, should be discarded. If a full bottle will not be used within this time, only partially fill the bottle. Always discard any remaining solution before adding fresh solution.
