Hi all,

Did a little searching on the web on hardening gelatin and ran across a chemical (?) called Genipin. Has anyone heard of it or know anything about it? From what I read (see links below), it seems to be a likely canidate for hardening gelatin and might work for alt processes. I noticed that it was compared to glutaraldehyde and looks like it might be a better choice.
