The cell membrane (plasma membrane) is a thin semi-permeable membrane, consisting of a lipid bilayer with embedded proteins that separates the interior of all cells from the environment. The basic function of the cell membrane is to protect the cell from its surroundings. The cell membrane controls the movement of substances in and out of cells and organelles. In this way, it is selectively permeable to ions and organic molecules. Cell membranes are involved in a variety of cellular processes such as cell adhesion, ion conductivity and cell signaling and serve as the attachment surface for several extracellular structures, including the cell wall, glycocalyx, and intracellular cytoskeleton.
Abbkine TraKine™ Cell Plasma Membrane Staining Kits has below two components:
1. CPM™ Green (1000×) for Green Fluorescence or CPM™ Orange (1000×) for Orange Fluorescence
2. Assay Buffer (10×)
Abbkine Cell Plasma Membrane Staining Kits are a set of fluorescence imaging tools for rapid staining of plasma membranes in living and fixed suspended or attached cells depending on the cell type and experimental conditions.
CPM™ Orange (1000×) included in TraKine™ Cell Plasma Membrane Staining Kit (Orange Fluorescence) and CPM™ Green (1000×) included in TraKine™ Cell Plasma Membrane Staining Kit (Green Fluorescence), they are proprietary lipophilic carbocyanine dyes which are weak fluorescent in water but high fluorescent and quite photostable when incorporated into membranes.
The Abbkine Cell Plasma Membrane Staining Kits has below features:
1. Enables the uniform staining of cell membrane across a wide variety of mammalian cell types, and can be used for both living and fixed suspended or attached cells.
2. Optimized for various fluorescence platforms such as microplate assays, flow cytometry and fluorescence microscope.
3. Proprietary CPM Orange™ (Ex/Em = 549/569 nm) and CPM Green™ (Ex/Em = 484/501 nm)-resulting in accelerated diffusion within membranes, staining is also maintained after fixation with formaldehyde, enabling further multi-color staining.
About Abbkine Scientific Co., Ltd.
Abbkine serves global scientists in the field of proteomics and cytology and is committed to the innovation and development of various scientific reagents related to proteomics and cytology, expecting to accelerate the pace of life science research and drug discovery. Proteomics products cover the preparation of samples (protein extraction, purification, coupling), protein quantification, antibodies and kits for protein detection. Cytology products involve cytokines (cell culture), cell status detection, cell staining, organelle extraction, cell metabolism and cytopathology reagents (kits). Abbkine relies on the product portfolio and unique marketing support as the main market strategy and product innovation mode, with ultimate aim to facilitate your research career!
Abbkine Scientific Co., Ltd. was founded by a number of scientists and marketing experts in the field of life science in California, USA in 2012. With brand acquisition and resource integration, Abbkine moved its headquarters to China, to meet the growing demands from Asia Pacific. Combining cutting edge technology from United States with China’s manufacturing engineering and cost advantages, we aim to provide innovative, high-quality and affordable experimental kits, proteins, antibodies and other research tools for scientists in the field of proteomics and cytology worldwide.
