Hi, I've just started using acridine orange stain, which binds to degraded
 DNA and fluoresces in an acidic environment. I seems to work well, but
you  would need a FITC filter for your fluorescent microscope.There is a
protocol  in: Furutani-Seiki et al. Development (1996) 123 229-239  Hope
this helps. Cheers, Jane
