Cell Explorer™ fluorescence imaging kits are a set of tools for labeling cells for fluorescence microscopic investigations of cellular functions.
The effective labeling of cells provides a powerful method for studying cellular events in a spatial and temporal context. Cell Tracking Kits are designed to uniformly label live cells in blue, green or red fluorescence for the studies that require the fluorescent tag molecules retained inside cells for relatively longer time.
The kits use weakly fluorescent dyes that carry a cell-retaining moiety. The dye becomes strongly fluorescent upon entering into live cells, and trapped inside live cells to give a stable fluorescence signal for relatively long time. The dye is a hydrophobic compound that easily permeates intact live cells. The labeling process is robust, requiring minimal hands-on time. It can be readily adapted for a wide variety of fluorescence platforms such as microplate assays, immunocytochemistry and flow cytometry. It is useful for a variety of studies, including cell adhesion, chemotaxis, multidrug resistance, cell viability, apoptosis and cytotoxicity. The kits provide all the essential components with an optimized cell-labeling protocol. They are suitable for proliferating and non-proliferating cells, and can be used for both suspension and adherent cells.
