[Arabidopsis] Sourcing FM4-64

I am looking into buying FM4-64 to stain cell membranes in living
Arabidopsis shoots.  I see that i can buy 1 mg of FM4-64 from
Invitrogen/Molecular Probes for about $400 (CAD.)  I've also found a
second supplier, Calbiochem, that sells FM4-64 under the name
SynaptoRed for $240 (CAD) for 5 mg.  The publications i've looked at
have all used FM4-64 from Molecular Probes.  I'm wondering if anyone
has used Calbiochem's SynaptoRed/FM4-64 in Arabidopsis, and if they
could comment on it's efficacy at staining cell membranes.

Thanks very much,
