    The styryl dye RH237 is a fast-responding potentiometric probe that is primarily used for functional imaging of neurons.

    RH795

    The styryl dye RH795 is a fast-responding potentiometric probe that is primarily used for functional imaging of neurons. The dye is spectrally similar to RH414 (61016), but exhibits different physiological effects during staining. For example, RH414 causes arterial constriction during cortex staining, while RH795 does not (see references 1,2).

    DiO/DPA Membrane Potential Detection Kit

    The DiO/DPA system detects cytoplasmic membrane potential changes using the principle of fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET), where DiO is a "stationary" FRET donor while DPA acts as a potentiometric FRET acceptor. The DiO/DPA system has been reported to produce a fluorescence signal change of >56% in HEK-293 cells and >25% in neuronal cultures and brain slices per 100 mV membrane potential change.

    Di-4-ANEPPS

    Di-4-ANEPPS is a fast-responding membrane potential dye. Changes in the membrane potential of the cell correlate with changes in the fluorescence excitation intensity of the dye.
