EasyProbe™ ActinGreen 488 Stain

Introduction

EasyProbes™ ActinGreen 488 Stain is a selective, high-affinity F-actin probe conjugated to our bright, photostable, green-fluorescent Andy Fluor™ 488 dye. Our EasyProbes™ ActinGreen 488 Stain is formulated in a ready-to-use solution that is provided in a convenient-to-use dropper bottle. Just tip and drip two drops of stain solution to the cell slide to stain your cells. 

Features

  • High-affinity staining of F-actin with superior specificity compared to antibody methods
  • Ready-to-use liquid formulation in convenient dropper bottle—no need to dilute, weigh, or pipette
  • Bright fluorescence signal


Suggestions for use

  • In most cases 2 drops of stain solution and an incubation of 15 to 30 minutes is sufficient for bright actin staining; however, optimization may be needed for some cell types, conditions, and applications. In such cases simply add more, or fewer drops until the optimal staining intensity is obtained.
  • EasyProbes™ ActinGreen 488 Stain is excited with a maximum at 500 nm, with an emission maximum at 525 nm. It is detected through standard GFP and FITC filters.
