MemBrite™ Fix Cell Surface Stains

Options for super-resolution imaging

MemBrite™ Fix Cell Surface Staining Kits provide a convenient way to visualize cell boundaries in multicolor staining experiments. Staining is rapid and uniform, with a wide choice of colors. MemBrite™ Fix dyes covalently label the surface of live cells. The staining withstands fixation and permeabilization for subsequent immunofluorescence staining.

Several MemBrite™ Fix dyes have been validated in super-resolution imaging applications or 2-photon microscopy. MemBrite™ Fix-ST dyes are recommended for super-resolution imaging by STORM. MemBrite™ Fix or MemBrite™ Fix-ST dyes can be used for standard microscopy applications; however, MemBrite™ Fix dyes are generally more photostable than MemBrite™ Fix-ST dyes. See the table below for more information.

1. Kit size based on 200 uL reaction volume, actual number of reactions depends on sample size.
2. MemBrite™ Fix dyes are named for their Abs/Em maxima. Download the Product Information Sheet for spectra.
3. MemBrite™ Fix-ST 681/698 dye is reported to have better performance in STORM imaging than MemBrite™ Fix 680/700 dye.
