Hi all,

Was wondering if someone could help with a simple question (is there such a
thing with microalgae?).

I wish to stain sections of Dunaliella (for TEM) to locate lipid bodies and
later use video imaging to quantify results over time.

Which would be the best stain for this application? 

Thanks in anticipation,

Yours Sincerely,

Warren Booth
