Viromer® CYTOSTAIN

LIVE CELL STAINING

Viromer® CYTOSTAIN is a brand new LIVE CELL STAINING product which provides totally new options to your experiments.

  • live cell staining with mRNAs encoding for fluorescent fusionproteins pre-complexed to Viromer® nanoparticles
  • expression enables staining of targeted cell organelles
  • it’s a biological staining method (less toxic than chemical colors)
  • This is resulting in the possibility of downstream experiments!!! (e.g. extraction of DNA / RNA / proteins to use in sequencing, qPCR, or Westernblot)
  • non-viral
  • ready-to-use lyophilized product

Additional constructs for other organelles with differnet colors to add to the palette are under development.

Customized constructs are also possible. Talk to our team about your ideas and needs.
