How stable is CellBrite membrane staining? Are the dyes toxic to cells?

Lipophilic carbocyanine dyes have been used to stain neuronal cells in culture for several weeks, and in vivo for up to a year. The dyes do not appreciably affect cell viability, and do not readily transfer between cells with intact membranes, allowing cell migration and tracking studies in mixed populations. Stability of labeling may vary between cell types, depending on rates of membrane turnover or cell division.
