MitoTrack™ Green FM


MitoTrack™ Green FM (Known as MitoTracker® Green FM, Trade Mark of ThermoFisher Scientific) is an green-fluorescent dye that stains mitochondria in live cells and its accumulation is dependent upon membrane potential. The dye is not well-retained after aldehyde fixation.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

It looks like my Mitotracker™ dye is staining more than just the mitochondria. Why?
This is typically a result of using too high of a concentration of the MitoViewr™ dye. Most organic dyes are used in the low micromolar range. The MitoView™ dyes are used at a much lower concentration, around 50–200 nanomolar. Higher concentrations can cause background fluorescence and non-mitochondrial staining.
