Live Cell Labeling Kit - Orange Fluorescence (Ex405nm) | Cytopainter (ab187698) is designed to uniformly label live cells in orange fluorescence for the studies that require the fluorescent tag molecules retained inside cells for a relatively longer time. The kit uses a non-fluorescent dye that carries a cell-retaining moiety. The dye becomes strongly fluorescent upon entering into live cells, and is trapped inside cells to give stable fluorescence signals. The dye is a hydrophobic compound that easily permeates intact live cells. The labeling process is robust, requiring minimal hands-on time. The orange fluorescence dye has the spectral properties of large Stokes Shift at Ex/Em = ~400/550 nm. When well excited with the Violet Laser at 405 nm, the dye emits intense orange fluorescence at ~550 nm. The kit is optimized to be used with a flow cytometer equipped with a Violet Laser and particularly suitable for multicolor flow cytometric analysis of cells. It can also be used with a fluorescence microscope with a customized filter set.
The kit provides all the essential components with an optimized cell-labeling protocol (Ex/Em= 405/550 nm). It is an excellent tool to label cells for fluorescence microscopic and flow cytometric investigations of cellular functions. The effective labeling of cells provides a powerful method for studying cellular events in a spatial and temporal context. The kit is useful for a variety of studies, including cell adhesion, chemotaxis, multidrug resistance, cell viability, apoptosis and cytotoxicity. It is suitable for proliferating and non-proliferating cells.
