Organelle structures play a critical role in cellular function, and the detection of specific cell structures is key in fluorescence imaging of cells and tissue. Cell structure labels can be a counterstain method to identify the location of specific proteins and targets of interest within the cell. Our cell labels include cell structure specific dyes or antibodies for live-cell or fixed-cell imaging, as well as for flow cytometry.
Cell-permeant or fluorescent fusion proteins that bind the ER in live cells.
Cell labels that target Golgi lipids or fluorescent proteins that target a Golgi enzyme in live cells.
Live cell markers to target and track acidic organelles or fluorescent proteins that bind the lysosome membrane.
Cell-permeant and cell-impermeant stains for the nucleus, nuclear components, and nucleolus.
Fluorescent proteins for live cells or antibodies for staining peroxisomes in fixed cells.
Thermo Fisher Scientific offers an extensive portfolio of highly purified and specific fluorescently conjugated lectins. These lectins come in a variety of dyes including bright Alexa Fluor Dyes, Dylight Dyes, and other classic dyes, to provide bright and sharp images of cells for specific glycoprotein detection. Fluorescent conjugation allows you to easily localize and detect cell-surface or intracellular glycoproteins, making them a versatile primary detection approach for imaging or flow cytometry applications.
CellLight fusion proteins provide an easy way to label specific structures in live cells with fluorescent proteins. Simply add the reagent to your cells, incubate overnight, and you’re ready to image in the morning. These ready-to-use constructs express fluorescent fusion proteins targeted to specific intracellular structures. The fluorescent protein is introduced using a simple transfection step that doesn’t require molecular biology techniques to carry out—it works like a cell stain.
