Application Note

Cell Labeling and Tracking In Vivo Using VivoTrack™ NIR Fluorescent Dye

Fluorescent dyes have been used for many years to label cells for microscopy studies, and a variety of dyes in the visible fluorescence spectrum are available to label different cellular compartments and organelles. Efficient delivery of the fluorophore to the cell without excessively modifying surface proteins or perturbing cell function is the major biotechnological challenge.

VivoTrack is a NIR fluorescent dye with a long aliphatic tail to facilitate insertion into the lipid bilayer of the cell. With high solubility, reactivity, and excellent stability, VivoTrack dye offers superior brightness ideal for detection and longitudinal cell tracking in vivo across many applications including inflammation, immunology, and stem cell research.

This application note highlights the benefits of using VivoTrack NIR fluorescent dye in your in vivo imaging studies:

  • Track stem cells, T cells, macrophages and many other cell types longitudinally in vivo
  • Water soluble - no need for harsh organics such as DMSO or ethanol, chemicals known to affect cell function.
  • Homogeneous cell staining with no impact on cell viability
  • Optimized for in vivo use with PerkinElmer’s IVIS® optical imaging platform

IVISense™ Fluorescent Probe Selector Guide for Oncology Research

The goal of in vivo fluorescence molecular imaging is to enable non-invasive visualization and quantification of cellular and biological functioning to better understand and characterize disease processes and treatment effects earlier within the context of a biological system.

This selector guide for IVISense fluorescent probes is a powerful tool to help advance your oncology research. By matching probe properties to specific biology and biomarker characteristics, you can better understand how imaging and quantification of early biological changes associated with disease development, therapeutic efficacy, and drug-induced tissue changes can be realized.


White Paper

The Role of In Vivo Imaging in Drug Discovery and Development

The primary goal of preclinical imaging is to improve the odds of clinical success and reduce drug discovery and development time and costs. Advances in non-invasive in vivo imaging techniques have raised the use of animal models in drug discovery and development to a new level by enabling quick and efficient drug screening and evaluation. Read this White Paper to learn how preclinical in vivo imaging helps to ensure that smart choices are made by providing Go/No-Go decisions and de-risking drug candidates early on, significantly reducing time to the clinic and lowering costs all while maximizing biological understanding.
