CellVue® NIR815 Fluorescent Cell Labeling Kit
The CellVue NIR815 cell linker kit uses proprietary membrane labeling technology to stably incorporate a fluorescent dye with long aliphatic tails (CellVue NIR815) into lipid regions of the cell membrane.
The labeling vehicle provided with the kit (Diluent C) is an iso-osmotic aqueous solution which contains no physiologic salts or buffers, detergents, or organic solvents and is designed to maintain cell viability while maximizing dye solubility and staining efficiency. The pattern of staining is dependent upon the cell type being labeled and the membranes of the cells.
CellVue NIR815, a near-infrared fluorescent cell linker has been reported to be useful for short-term in vitro cell proliferation studies, cell tracking in isolated organ preparation applications and cell tracking using the Pearl® Impulse Small Animal Imaging System (Figure 2) or Odyssey® CLx or Odyssey Classic Infrared Imaging System.
