RediStain™ WormDye Lipid Green


RediStain™ WormDye Lipid Green is an intrinsically lipophilic fluorophore that can be used to effectively track lipids inside C. elegans. When using Lipid Green, native lipid droplet morphology is preserved and fat content per body volume can be quantified in individual worms. 1
