Cell Membrane Dyes

Biotium offers a wide range of dyes that bind to cell membranes including:

CellBrite™ membrane dyes, lipophilic carbocyanine dyes that stain the plasma membrane of cells and are non-toxic, for longterm tracking. They come in 4 colors in the visible fluorescent range, and 4 colors in the near-IR range.

CellBrite™ Fix membrane dyes are a new class of fluorogenic membrane dyes that covalently stain the plasma membrane in live cells. They are unique among membrane stains in that they can withstand both fixation and detergent permeabilization.

See below for a complete list of the membrane dyes that we offer, including a large number of classical membrane and membrane potential dyes.
