First of all, there are only 53 Tonics in the whole game, so you have to get every single one.

UPDATE: 2013-08-05
1. There are different statements regarding the DLC Tonics counting towards this achievement. Some say they do count, others say they dont. For your own safety, try to get all the original tonics.

2. I've marked the tonics that people claimed to be missable. Unfortunately I can't tell you at what point these become unobtainable as I haven't played this game for such a long time. I got them all in one go, so I'd say they are hard to miss if you watch out for them.

Original Story:
-9 are earned as Research rewards
-8 can be bought from Gatherers Gardens
-3 can be Invented at U-Invent
-3 are earned as Gifts for rescuing Little Sisters (you need all 18 to be saved)
-the other 30 are scattered throughout the whole game (check if you got them all before leaving a level to minimize backtracking)
