MIDCLARET Sigma-Aldrich

CellVue® Claret Far Red Fluorescent Cell Linker Midi Kit for General Membrane Labeling

Distributed for Phanos Technologies




CellVue Claret kit fluoresces in the far red and may be used for general cell membrane labeling including in vitro cell labeling, in vitro lymphocyte proliferation studies,† in vivo cytotoxicity assays,† and also as a second color for monitoring cell-cell membrane transfer.†

Biochem/physiol Actions

The CellVue Claret Fluorescent Cell Linker kit uses a proprietary membrane labeling technology to stably incorporate a far red fluorescent dye with long aliphatic tails (CellVue Claret) into lipid regions of the cell membrane.†


For additional technical details on Fluorescent Cell Linker Dyes including a comprehensive bibliography, please visit PKH and CellVue®; Claret Fluorescent Cell Linker Dyes.


This kit provides enough dye for up to 50 samples of 20 million cells each and enough diluent for up to 30 samples of 20 million cells each when using a 2 mL final staining volume containing a final concentration of 2 x 10-6 M of PKH26 dye. Users must determine the optimal dye and cell concentrations from their cell type(s) and experimental purposes.
