Hello All,
                we've successfully used PE and PECY5.5 for years , however being a tandem conjugate care must be taken not to expose it to light/heat as then it will dissociate leaving you with PE and CY5.5 , this then becomes" uncompensatable " against the "other"/original PE.
Also the combination of PECY5.5 and APC works well with the above precaution. I've had instances where 2 users have had identical stains on the same day( but from different vials/lots) one worked well the other was unusable.
