      Hi all,
       We are thinking of using aniline blue to help prevent contamination of samples after each selective sweep netting.  The idea is that after the specimen is collected from the net, the net will be misted with the agent thus dyeing any pollen before using the net again. We think this method may help reduce the amount of pollen collected from previous plants. We plan to use a rotation of nets thus allowing the dye to dry in-between uses.  Has anyone used this method before?  Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated.  Thanks.
