MG MGA - Brand mixing of Silicone DOT 5 brake fluid

My car has been filled with "Cartel" brand silicone DOT 5 brake fluid for the past 3 years with no problems.

I am installing a new clutch slave and will have to bleed it. That will require fluid and I don't have a local source for the Cartel brand.

The local parts stores sell DOT 5 in various other brands.

Is there a problem in mixing several brands of silicone DOT 5 rated fluid in the braking system.
