Oil-containing lipid bodies (green) are visible within live Ophiocytium maius Naegeli algal cells after vital staining with the fluorescent dye, BODIPY 505/515. Chloroplasts in these filamentous algal cells fluoresce red under the same blue light excitation.

Biotechnological applications of using BODIPY 505/515 to visualize and detect intracellular oil stores in live algal cells are discussed in Cooper, M.S. et al., “Visualizing green oil in live algal cells”, J. Biosci. Bioeng., vol. 109, 198-201 (2010).
