Description

CellTracker™ CM-DiI is a red fluorescent dye well suited for monitoring cell movement or location. After loading into cells, the dye is well retained, allowing for multigenerational tracking of cellular movements. The red excitation/emission spectra are ideal for multiplexing with green fluorescent dyes and proteins.

• Fluorescent signal retention of >72 hours (typically three to six generations)
• Red excitation/emission spectra (553/570 nm maxima) ideal for multiplexing
• Low cytotoxicity—does not affect viability or proliferation
• Improved water solubility when compared to DiI

The CellTracker™ CM-DiI fluorescent dye has been designed to freely pass through cell membranes into cells, where it is transformed into cell-impermeant reaction products. CellTracker™ fluorescent dyes are retained in living cells through several generations. These dyes are transferred to daughter cells but not adjacent cells in a population. CellTracker™ CM-DiI dye is designed to display fluorescence for at least 72 hours, and the dye exhibits ideal tracking properties: it is stable, nontoxic at working concentrations, well retained in cells, and brightly fluorescent at physiological pH. Additionally, the excitation and emission spectra of CellTracker™ CM-DiI dye are well separated from GFP (green fluorescent protein) spectra allowing for multiplexing.
