Cytoplasmic Membrane Staining Kits

Stable, non-toxic, and fixable labeling of cellular membranes

These are fluorescent dyes with one or two long hydrocarbon chains that insert themselves into the plasma membrane by hydrophobic interaction with membrane lipids. In general, the stability of membrane labeling increases with the length of the hydrocarbon chains on the dye. However, many of these dyes are very insoluble in water, making cell labeling a challenge. To overcome this problem, a series of Cytoplasmic Membrane Labeling Kits have been developed that facilitate the incorporation of lipophilic carbocyanine dyes into cell membranes.

PromoKine's Membrane Labeling Kits are designed to label cytoplasmic membranes with blue, green, orange, and red fluorescent dyes. The labeling is stable (and fixable!), nontoxic, and suitable for long-term tracking of cells. By combining multiple Cytoplasmic Membrane Stains, one can label multiple cell populations with different colors for studies of cell-cell interactions.

PromoKine's Membrane Labeling Kits are ready-to-use dye delivery solutions that can be added directly to culture media for fluorescent labeling of cell membranes.
