I need a dye that will stain stem cells (for this purpose the stem cells will proquired from chicken bone marrow).
This will be an educational hands on activity for young teenagers so ideally the dye should be:
- Easy to handle
- Stain quickly
- Be relatively cheap
- Present an obvious colour change under a low zoom microscope or the naked eye
I vaguely remember using a dye years ago that fits this bill, but cannot recall the name or company.
