Cytoskeleton is proud to announce the release of new, innovative probes to visualize the cellular plasma membrane, which was originally developed by the makers of the MemBright™ probes.
Cytoskeleton Inc. has two unique offerings:
New, Bright Fluorogenic MemGlow™ Probes
MemGlow™ probes provide high photostability, exhibit excellent fluorescent quantum yields, and some of them are super-resolution compatible. MemGlow™ probes are chemically composed of cyanine or BODIPY dyes bearing zwitterionic amphiphilic anchors for enhanced retention in the plasma membrane. Click here to learn more.
New, NR Membrane Polarity Probes
NR Polarity Probes are solvatochromic photostable plasma membrane-targeting dyes. Upon binding with a plasma membrane in a predominant liquid ordered (LO) phase these probes exhibit a 45-50 nm wavelength shift relative to liquid disordered (Ld) phase enabling investigators to examine the nanoscale distribution of local chemical polarity in plasma membranes.
