I am looking for a procedure/protocol for labeling Oleic Acid and/or Triglycerides. I do not want to use a kit (too expensive). I am looking at the exocytosis utilizing TIRF microscopy and Nile Red is too bright and stains the lipid bylayer. I can look at red and green florescence with the TIRF microscope. Thank you for your help.
