Default Local Source for Methylene Blue?

First batch with the new brewery and I've got the microscope and hemocytometer, so I'd kinda like to really geek out and do a cell count on my yeast starter. Is there a store that sells Methylene Blue? I'm in the Minneapolis area if that helps. lol if not, it's no big deal.

Look for an educational science store, or just a straight up chemical supply

Any fish store should have methylene blue. It's used to treat fungal infections on fish.
