CellBrite™ NIR Cytoplasmic Membrane Dyes are novel near-infrared carbocyanine dyes for labeling the cytoplasmic membranes of living cells. Due to their long emission wavelengths (Figure 1), near-infrared cell membrane stains can be used to label cells for near-infrared small animal imaging studies for non-invasive imaging of cell migration and cell homing. The dyes are compatible with near-infrared imaging systems, and also can be imaged by confocal microscopy using 640 nm excitation (Figure 2).
Traditional carbocyanine dyes like DiI, DiO, and DiR, which can be difficult to dissolve and prone to precipitation during cell staining. CellBrite™ NIR dyes have water-soluble groups in addition to long hydrophobic tails. These unique chemical structural elements improve the solubility of the dyes while still providing highly stable cytoplasmic membrane staining.
