Cell Tracing & Tracking
Life Technologies™ offers diverse reagents for labeling whole cells, microbes, subcellular organelles, and neuronal pathways. These trackers and tracers in a wide variety of colors and functionalities provide efficient and sensitive methods for identifying and following specific cells within a population. From long-lasting Qtracker® nanocrystal labels, to cell-permeant cytoplasmic labels and fixable membrane tracers, to CellLight® fluorescent proteins targeted to many cellular domains, Molecular Probes® fluorescent cellular trackers and tracers provide a unique toolbox to fit specific research needs.
Life Technologies™ offers Molecular Probes® fluorescent stains and probes for short- and long-term tracing in fixable and nonfixable cell samples. Many stains are fluorogenic; all come in a variety of colors and are easy to use.
|Axonal pathways can be labeled either in live tissue with microinjected fluorescent beads, or in fixed tissue with lipophilic dyes that diffuse throughout all the projections of given cells. Additional products found here can label myelin tracks along with neuronal somas with Nissl body stains.|
This section contains products designed specifically for tracking yeast, fungi, and bacteria. Many were first characterized for their utility in mammalian cells, but have been found to work for single-cell organisms like yeast and bacteria. Our easy-to-use BacLight™ kits for viability determination can be used to track cells for several generations.
We now offer a comprehensive selection guide to our diverse Molecular Probes® organelle-specific fluorescent labels for mitochondria, lysosomes, the endoplasmic reticulum, and the Golgi complex. Also included here are the CellLight® fluorescent proteins targeted to subcellular regions.
