    CF® Dye Biocytin

    CF® dye biocytin is a cell-impermeant, fixable polar tracer that is a conjugate of CF® dye and biotin with an aldehyde-fixable primary amine. Polar tracers are commonly used to investigate cell-cell and cell-liposome fusion as well as membrane permeability and transport through gap junctions or cell uptake during pinocytosis.

    CF® Dye Hydrazide

    Fluorescent CF® dye hydrazides are bright, extremely water-soluble, nontoxic molecules, useful as aldehyde-fixable cell tracers. They can also be used to label aldehyde or ketone groups of polysaccharides, carbohydrates or glycoproteins.

    Bovine Serum Albumin CF® Dye Conjugates

    Bright and photostable fluorescent BSA conjugates for applications in which well-defined molecular weight fluid phase tracers are needed. These applications include studying the rate of endocytosis and exocytosis and following vesicle trafficking.

    Cholera Toxin Subunit B CF® Dye Conjugates

    Binds GM1 ganglioside in lipid rafts and is used as a retrograde neuronal tracer for live imaging or on fixed cells.

    Transferrin (human) CF® Dye Conjugates

    Labeled human transferrin is used for microscopic studies of the endosomal pathway and/or transferrin uptake studies.

    α-Bungarotoxin, CF® Dye and Other Conjugates

    Conjugates of α-Bungarotoxin labeled with a selection of our CF® dyes and other labels. Labeled α-bungarotoxin conjugates can be used for staining nicotinic acetylcholine receptors at neuromuscular junctions in tissue sections.
