What do you need to do with them? Does it have to be the membrane
itself? or just the 'perimiter' of the cell? Does it suit your
application to do an antibody mediated stain? Because if you cant
find anything else, then you could use anti-LPS antibodies.
You can get lipids that will incorporate into membranes but I'm not
sure what labels you can get attached to them and unfortunately I
dont have the reference for it!
