I'm trying to grow Chilomonas (a cryptomonad) on agar plates.
Unfortunately the cells are
colourless, making any colonies that might arise very difficult to
Does anyone know of a dye that would bind to the cells without
them? I'd like to add such a dye to the agar to make small
accumulations of cells more visible.
