Cell labeling and tracking in vivo using IVISense NIR fluorescent dyes


Fluorescent dyes have been used for many years to label cells for microscopy studies, and a variety of dyes in the visible fluorescence spectrum are available to label different cellular compartments and organelles. Efficient delivery of the fluorophore to the cell without excessively modifying surface proteins or perturbing cell function is the major biotechnological challenge.

Our IVISense® NIR fluorescent cell labeling dyes with high solubility, reactivity, and excellent stability, offers superior brightness ideal for detection and longitudinal cell tracking in vivo across many applications including inflammation, immunology, and stem cell research.

This application note highlights the benefits of using IVISense cell labeling fluorescent dyes in your in vivo imaging studies.

  • Track stem cells, T cells, macrophages and many other cell types longitudinally in vivo
  • Water soluble - no need for harsh organics such as DMSO or ethanol, chemicals known to affect cell function.
  • Homogeneous cell staining with no impact on cell viability
  • Optimized for in vivo use with Revvity’s IVIS® optical imaging platform

For research use only. Not for use in diagnostic procedures.
