LIVE dyes are designed for STED and confocal microscopy in living cells. The LIVE dye series offers unique labeling options - live-cell imaging with organic dyes now becomes possible! All Abberior LIVE dyes work remarkably well for labeling with ligands like SNAP®-, CLIP®- or Halo®-Tag fusion proteins in living cells. The required conjugates can be prepared easily from Abberior LIVE NHS ester and commercially available BG- or Halo®-Tag amines.
The LIVE dyes combine the best of two worlds: organic dyes with highest brightness and photostability among all fluorescent markers, and live-cell labeling out of the box.
