I was thinking of that, too.

Some clarification from the OP would help, too. Is it that you don't
have access to a fluorescent scope, or that you don't want the stain
to be fluorescent? Because if it is the latter, I believe that
hematoxylin is autofluorescent; or at least, some component of an H&E
stained slide is autofluorescent.

What is the nature of your sample? Live, fixed or frozen? Cells or
tissues? How are you visualizing it now?
