Here's the latest (and only!) answer I received: that speaks for itself.
I wish to thank Mike Moser for explaining how phloxin B works. I must say
that I tried the pombe concentration (2.5 mg per L, sterilizing the 0.5%
stock solution by filtration) and it seems to work too: as you'll see
below, Vickie uses this stain at 20 mg per L but it is autoclaved with
the medium. Any concentration will do!!
Again, thanks everybody

Dear Dr. Belhumeur;
I am responding to your request for information regarding phloxine
B . We have used phloxine B to screen for stationary phase mutations in S.
cerevisiae. Phloxine B is added directly to the medium at 20 mg/l, which
is autoclaved as usual. For more information, see Cannon et al., Genetics
113:247-264 (1986). Good luck!
