SPY555-actin is a bright & non toxic live and fixed cells F-actin stain based on our SPYTM dyes series. Its optimized structure allows quick labeling of F-actin in live & fixed cells with high specificity and very low background. SPY555-actin stains F-actin of live or fixed cells without the need for genetic manipulation or overexpression of fluorescent proteins. Its absorbance and emission are similar to tetramethylrhodamine (TMR). SPY555-actin enables multicolor imaging with SPY505, SPY595, SPY650, SPY700, SiR & GFP. SPY555-actin can be imaged with standard TMR or Cy3 filtersets. It can be used for widefield, confocal, SIM or STED imaging in living or fixed cells and tissue. Probe quantity allows 100 staining experiments.*
