Re: BRYONET: Hoyer's Solution


Hi all.

For years now, everyone has talked about the 'apparent' health risks of
Hoyer's. Can anyone out there clarify these concerns. Looking at the web, I
came across this title that apparently discusses the risks, but I don't
a copy of it: "Upton, M.S. 1993. Aqueous gum-chloral slide mounting media:
an historical review. Bulletin of Entomological Research. 83 : 267-274."
