In the autumn of 2014, we presented new stains to conduct live cell imaging of Actin and Tubulin, which I covered in my post¬ 2 new Actin and Tubulin live-cell imaging stains ‚Äď without transfection!
- No transfection
- No washing steps
- No toxic effects if used in the concentration range recommended
- Excellent brightness
- Far-red excitation &¬†emission
- Deep tissue penetration and minimal background
- Multiple fluorescent stainings with other dyes possible
- Compatible with Superresolution microscopic techniques
Since then,¬†Spirochrome has added another stain with the same benefits: SiR-DNA, a far-red, fluorogenic, cell permeable and highly specific probe for DNA (see Fig 1).
SLAS – High Content Screening Conference
From June 27th to June 29th, the SLAS – High Content Screening Conference took place in Dresden/Germany. The conference focussed on new essays and novel microscopy techniques.
Spirochrome and tebu-bio were¬†selected to present a poster about the features of SiR-stains, which are¬†excellent tools for phenotypic screening and high content screening (HCS) approaches.
If you are interested in learning more about these exciting live cell imaging tools, don’t¬†hesitate to download our joint poster:
