Overview

Benefits of VivoTrack NIR fluorescent dyes

  • Identify cells in vitro or track cells in vivo
  • Track stem cells, T cells, macrophages and many other cell types longitudinally in vivo
  • Simple and rapid method for bright and uniform cell labeling without affecting cell viability, proliferation, or function
  • Labeled cells retain excellent viability and normal proliferative capacity, with significant signal retained in dividing cells
  • Water soluble - no need for harsh organics such as DMSO or ethanol, which are known to affect cell function
  • Optimized for in vivo use with PerkinElmer's IVIS® optical imaging platform

Our explorer kit contains 1 vial of VivoTrack 680 containing 0.2mg of the labeling agent formulated in polyethylene glycol and is in dry solid form. The packaged material provides sufficient reagent to label up to 2 x 108 cells.

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

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.
