Product Description

LysoView™ dyes are useful for staining lysosomes in live cells.

  • No-wash, fluorescent staining of lysosomes in live cells
  • Non-toxic for real-time live-cell imaging
  • Lower background than LysoTracker® dyes
  • Dye options for super-resolution imaging
  • Color choices from blue to far-red, plus a unique NIR dye

LysoView™ dyes are fluorescent stains for imaging lysosome localization and morphology in live cells. The dyes accumulate in low pH organelles, resulting in highly specific staining without the need for a wash step. LysoView™ staining is non-toxic, and can imaged over the course of days, even after dye washout for some dye options (see the Product Information Sheet for more information).

LysoView™ 540 and LysoView™ 633 exhibit pH-sensitive fluorescence, further enhancing the specificity of staining. LysoView™ 488 has been validated in super-resolution imaging by SIM (Ref. 7), while LysoView™ 650 fluorophore is compatible with super-resolution imaging by SIM and STED.

LysoView™ 540 and LysoView™ 633 stain vacuoles in yeast. Staining of bacteria varies between dyes. See our Cellular Stains Table for details.

Note: LysoView™ 540 has limited photostability, and may not be suitable for all microscopy applications. LysoView™ 550 is a bright and more photostable choice.

Also see our unique UV-activatable Light-On LysoView™ 555, which is non-fluorescent until it is reversibly activated by UV light.
