comment Hoechst or DAPI for nuclear staining?
Does this imply that Hoechst stains are more hazardous to the researcher or the environment? If DAPI can't enter living cells but Hoechst can, are there concerns about mutagenicity (similar to e.g. ethidium bromide)?

comment Does electricity cause damage on a cellular level?
Great response; I learned something today! I also have a vague sense that, over time, flowing current through tissue can deplete the buffering capacity of the system and lead to pH changes, with all sorts of biochemical consequences; don't quote me on this but I think cardiac pacemakers switched from unipolar pulses to biphasic pulses to help avoid that kind of problem.
