1,6-Diphenyl-1,3,5-hexatriene (DPH) is almost non-fluorescent in water, but it exhibits a strong increase in fluorescence after intercalation into membranes and can be used as a probe for viscosity, polarity and lipid order.

CellBrite™ Cytoplasmic Membrane Dyes
CellBrite™ Cytoplasmic Membrane Labeling Kits are designed to label cell cytoplasmic membranes with fluorescent dyes, available in blue, green, orange, and red. The labeling is stable and nontoxic, suitable for long-term tracking of cells.
MitoView™ dyes are fluorogenic mitochondrial stains for live cells. The dyes rapidly accumulate in mitochondria and can be imaged without washing. They are available with blue, green, far-red, and near-infrared fluorescence.
NucSpot® Live Cell Nuclear Stains
NucSpot® Live Cell Nuclear Stains are cell-membrane permeable DNA dyes that specifically stains nuclei in live or fixed cells. They have excellent specificity for DNA without the need for a wash step, and they have low toxicity for live cell imaging.
ViaFluor® Live Cell Microtubule Stains
ViaFluor® Live Cell Microtubule Stains are cell-permeable taxol probes for imaging the microtubule cytoskeleton in live cells. Available with blue, green, or far-red fluorescence.
ViaFluor® SE Cell Proliferation Kits
ViaFluor® SE Cell Proliferation Kits use amine-reactive dyes to covalently label the cell cytoplasm, and are used to monitor cell division by flow cytometry. The dyes also can be used to stably label cells to image cell morphology, or to track cell populations in mixed co-culture experiments. The labeling withstands fixation and permeabilization for immunostaining.
