[Histonet] stain living cells - what dye doesn't kill the cells?

From:"Moran Elishmereni"

Dear Histonetters,

Does anyone know of a dye/stain (fluorescent or non-fluorescent) that does
not kill cells? I want to do some live-imaging of live primary mast cells,
but be able to distinguish them from other cells in a certain mix. So I need
to stain them- but not affect there viability/function.
I know that this isnt exactly the forum for this question, but I'm hoping to
get some suggestions anyway.
Many thanks,
