DiI in Vegetable Oil

DiI (DiIC18(3); 1,1′-dioctadecyl-3,3,3′,3′-tetramethylindocarbocyanine) uniformly dissolved in vegetable oil in a formulation optimized for microinjection. Carbocyanine microinjection has been widely used for fate mapping and cell lineage studies and for the determination of spatial organization and connectivity patterns of central nervous systems.

Product Description

DiI uniformly dissolved in vegetable oil in a formulation optimized for microinjection. Carbocyanine microinjection has been widely used for fate mapping and cell lineage studies and for the determination of central nervous system spatial organization and connectivity patterns. The red fluorescent DiI and green fluorescent Neuro-DiO in oil can be used in combination for two color imaging. We also offer DiI solid, and CellBrite™ Orange, a DiI solution for staining cell membranes.

    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.
