  • Product overview

    Cell Plasma Membrane Staining Kit - Orange Fluorescence | Cytopainter (ab219941) uses an orange cell membrane probe (Ex/Em = 540/590 nm) that enables the uniform staining of cell membrane across a wide variety of mammalian cell types. The kit provides an excellent tool for the rapid staining of plasma membranes in suspended or attached live cells depending on the cell type and experimental conditions. The fluorescence staining in cell membranes is also maintained after fixation with formaldehyde, enabling further multi-color staining. In addition, the kit provides robust and flexible staining in live and fixed cells, and can be adapted for many different types of fluorescence platforms, such as fluorescence imaging and flow cytometry.

  • Notes

    The cell membrane (plasma membrane) is a thin semi-permeable membrane that separates the interior of all cells from the environment. The basic function of the cell membrane is to protect the cell from its surroundings. It is composed mainly of lipids and proteins. Cell membranes are involved in a variety of cellular processes such as cell adhesion, ion conductivity and cell signaling and serve as the attachment surface for several extracellular structures, including the cell wall, glycocalyx, and intracellular cytoskeleton.
