One of the major pains with membrane dyes for live cells is that within 30min, all the vesicles inside the cells are also labelled. Another major pain is when you discover that your dye is not fixable…
The CellBright dyes label membrane is apparently fixable, even with methanol, and doesn’t do the flip flop thing! Potentially extremely useful for image analysis!
Please leave a comment to let us know how it went for you! 🙂
Expansion microscopy and clearing are fantastic tools for anyone who images thick (> 1 cell diameter) fixed samples. We are now lucky to have access to state of the art talks and hands-on workshops at Scilife in September. Register early not to be disappointed!
Please apply to Hans (first day) and David (second day) directly!
If you are looking for an inspiring talk about a super freeware for image analysis, go to Scilife in Uppsala on the 8th of June and listen to Anne Carpenter from the Broad Institute where CellProfiler was born! Check out the details here.
Here is where to register for the next Neubias, the European Image Analysis school! Learn how to build your own image analysis pipeline with expert help! 🙂
