Well, but I really met this stain (I mean CTC) firtsly here. So I do not
have any idea about nature of CTC. Is it use in light microscopy or
fluorescence? Which compounds it will stain in cell (protein DNA etc)?
And the most interestin thing can I use CTC in some way to distinguish
active cells from dormant?
