After enucleation treatment, I wish to isolate DNA free ES cell cytoplasts 
using FACS. I have two questions:

1. Can FACS be used to isolate cytoplasts? (by using FCS to distingish the 
cytoplast from whole cells for example.)

2. How can I verify lack of DNA without exposing my cells to UV (cant use 

I would really appreciate any answers/comments/suggestions. Thanks.
