If you want to prepare an Oil Red O stock you can use this:

Oil Red O Stock,
0.7g Oil Red O
200ml Isopropanol
Stir O/N, then filter with 0.2micro m and store at +4degrees

Oil Red O Working Solution,
6 parts oil red o
4 parts dH2O
Mix and let sit at room temp for 20 mins
Filter as before

Hope this is of help to you,
