Product flyer

Biosensis’ new fluorescence imaging reagents are compatible with other fluorescent dyes, can be used on live & fixed samples,  and demonstrate excellent photo stability, low cytotoxicity, a large Stokes Shift and rapid cellular uptake.

Example: Advantage of Endoplasmic Reticulum Tracing Reagent (TR-601-ER1)

Why should you get this tracing reagent for the endoplasmic reticulum and not a competitors product? Well, this reagent can be used on live and fixed cells, is very photostable and can be washed away. Also, it can be stored and shipped at room temperature!
