vital staining for GUS

Dear Arabidopsers:

Since this is about the most vital plant-associated bionet group that our 
mainframe gets, I am posting this question here even tho it does not 
specifically related to Arabidopsis.

Question: how does one stain callus tissue / suspension cells / leaf tissue 
for GUS activity without killing it?

We have a problem in that we would like very much to preserve the tissue in 
which we are getting GUS expression for future work / multiplication / 
regeneration, but are not entirely certain as to how to go about it - short of 
a long and potentially wasteful (to say nothing of expensive) series of 

Can anyone help?  Email to ed at micro.uct.ac.za, please.

Thanks in advance....
