Cell Analysis Tools

A variety of cell studies including organelle detection and studies on function and proliferation of cells can be done using BioActs’ bright fluorescent probes and fluorescent antibodies. Since organelles have their own unique features, organelle-specific image tracking and analysis are very important research tools in cell biology. BioActs’ fluorescent probes for cell analysis purposes can be applied for live cell imaging, as well as fluorescent microscopy and flow cytometry.


CytoFlamma® Cell Membrane

CytoFlamma Membrane Staining

CytoFlamma® Fluors are hydrophobic dyes that can be used for cell membrane labeling by directly penetrating into cell membranes. Because of its low cytotoxicity and ability to penetrate into cell membranes, it also can be used in live cells.

Product Name PID Excitation/Emission (nm)
CytoFlamma® 496 Cell-membrane (Live) BCT-RCS5001 496 / 516nm
CytoFlamma® 552 Cell-membrane (Live) BCT-RCS1001 550 / 565nm
CytoFlamma® 648 Cell-membrane (Live) BCT-RCS1611 648 / 663nm
CytoFlamma® 675 Cell-membrane (Live) BCT-RCS3001 675 / 698nm
CytoFlamma® 749 Cell-membrane (Live) BCT-RCS1611 774 / 806nm
CytoFlamma® ICG Cell-membrane (Live) BCT-RCS1811 749 / 774nm

MitoFlamma™ Green

MitoFlamma™ Green is a green fluorescence probe specifically staining mitochondria of cells. By marking mitochondria of live cells, it can be used to trace cell mutations from drug or external stimuli. It can also be used for multi-imaging staining of fixed mitochondria. This probe can be applied for fluorescence microscopy or flow cytometry and analysis based on microplates.

ApoFlamma® Dyes

ApoFlamma® dyes are developed for fluorescence imaging of apoptosis. There are two types of products groups, I) ApoFlamma® PS and II) ApoFlamma® H. The ApoFlamma® PS panel targets specifically to phosphatidylserine (PS) exposed on the cell-surface of dead cells and ApoFlamma® H panel of dyes specifically targets histone 1 exposed on the surface of apoptotic cells. A broad coverage of the whole spectra from UV to NIR allows a broad application range, including in vitro and in vivo studies.

Organelle and Cell Target-specific Imaging

Cell Staining

BioActs supplies cell target-specific primary antibodies and other probes. In order to get clear-cut images by using primary antibodies specific for cell organelle targets such as Tubulin, Mitochondria, Autophagosome, Golgi, ER or Peroxisomes, it is important to apply secondary antibodies with excellent fluorescent dyes. BioActs’ fluorescent secondary antibodies provide best results in fluorescence microscopy, confocal laser scanning microscope (CLSM), flow cytometry or western blot. BioActs’ HRP secondary antibodies show ultimate performance in all areas of chemiluminescent detection systems as well.

In Vivo Imaging Tools

In vivo optical imaging is a method to monitor biologically useful information by visualizing small animals in real time and it is used in the preclinical stage of research such as drug development, cancer cells detection and treatment reaction monitoring. Fluorescent technology is nonradioactive, has long half-life, facilitates the use of multiple channels and the structure of its related equipment and devices are simpler than radioactive equipment. Due to these attributes, research on applying fluorescence techniques to in vivo imaging area is actively progressing in recent years.

Near-infrared (NIR) fluorescent dyes provided by BioActs have a wavelength range of 700~900nm, are free from noises caused by autofluorescence of biological substances and are used as effective imaging agents in in vivo optical imaging due to their long wavelength.


NpFlamma® HGC Series

NpFlamma®HGC are near-infrared (NIR) fluorescent contrast agents developed based on chitosan nanoparticles. Since chitosan, a main component of the NpFlamma®HGC agents series is a biologically-derived material, it is free from toxicity problems and has advantages such as long half-life, light stability and water solubility.
