Lysing solution

To All:

Our lab is using a lysing solution produced by Ortho.  It comes in a small
bottle and makes 100ml of solution.
Ortho has discontinued the item.  The product in the bottle is the standard
Ammonium Chloride reagent.  It is handy in the clinical environment in that
it is easily prepared and comes with the proper QC/Paperwork.

I am looking for a substitute.

Any ideas besides making it up from scratch?  Is there a like product on the
market? No fixative.

All help will be appreciated.
