Neuro-DiI

Neuro-DiI was developed at Biotium as an alternative to the widely used fluorescent membrane probe DiI. Neuro-DiI has structural features that may make the probe diffuse faster than DiI on cell membranes and also may result in a more stable labeling.

Product Description

Neuro-DiI was developed at Biotium as an alternative to the widely used fluorescent membrane probe DiI. Like Dilinoleyl DiI, Neuro-DiI has structural features that may make the probe diffuse faster than DiI on cell membranes. However, Neuro-DiI dye has saturated carbon chains, making it more hydrophobic than Dilinoleyl DiI, for potentially more stable labeling with less dye transfer between cells. Neuro-DiI has nearly identical absorption and emission wavelengths to those of DiI. We also offer Neuro-DiI in Vegetable Oil for microinjection studies. Also see our CellBrite™ Orange Cytoplasmic Membrane Dye, a ready-to-use dye solution for cell labeling.

    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

    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.
