Three New Lipibright Lipid Droplet Probes


We are excited to announce our latest product Lipibright! These probes consists of bright, fluorogenic live cell dyes that stain lipid droplets. LipiBright™ probes fluoresce 300 to 1000 times brighter in an oily/lipid environment compared to aqueous solutions.


LipiBright probes are photostable and possess narrow absorption and emission bands, a distinct advantage over the traditional Nile Red probe; thus, multicolor imaging is possible. These probes exhibit ideal characteristics for microscopy and have been validated with multiple techniques including epifluorescent (widefield), confocal, and two photon.



Available in 3 Color Options


Yellow Lipibright Far Red Lipibright Near-Infrared Lipibright
LipiBright™ SMCy3.5 can be visualized using a TRITC or similar filter set. LipiBright™ SMCy5.5 can be visualized using a Cy5 or far-red filter set.  LipiBright™ SMCy7.0 can be visualized using a Cy7 or infrared filter set.
