Description & Specifications


Color Yellow
For Use With (Equipment) Fluorescence Microscope
Quantity 20 x 50μg
Storage Requirements Store in freezer (-5 to -30°C) and protect from light.

  • After loading into cells, dye is well retained, allowing for multigenerational tracking of cellular movements
  • Red excitation/emission spectra (553/570nm maxima) are optimal for multiplexing with green fluorescent dyes and proteins
  • Fluorescent signal retention of >72 hours (typically three to six generations)
  • Low cytotoxicity—does not affect viability or proliferation
  • Improved water solubility when compared to DiI
  • Designed to freely pass through cell membranes into cells, where it is transformed into cell-impermeant reaction products
  • These dyes are transferred to daughter cells but not adjacent cells in population
  • Stable, nontoxic at working concentrations, well retained in cells, and brightly fluorescent at physiological pH
