This site says they can't: http://www.biology4k..._centriole.html

 

Is this true?

I would hazard yes at this one, but it will depend on how you want to detect them...

Through a microscope. I want to know if they can be separately identified when cell is not undergoing division, just like the link says it does. So can you give me a sure yes now? Please specify if by yes you mean that they can be detected or whether the link is correct.

In theory they should be detectable all the time, but whether you would see them by ordinary light microscopy is another matter.  It would probably be easier to use fluorescence microscopy and then confocal, or perhaps electron microscopy.
