Fluorescent Liposomes

A liposome made from a labeled lipid

Cell-cell and cell-liposome fusion, as well as membrane permeability and transport through gap junctions, can all be monitored using various types of fluorescent liposomes.

Fluorescent liposomes can be made from different fluorescent probes such as:

  • Fixable polar tracers
  • Lucifer yellow derivatives
  • Cascade blue and Alexa Fluor 405 derivatives
  • Non fixable polar tracers
  • Fluoescein derivatives
  • Sulforhodamines
  • Polysulfonated pyrenes
  • Lanthanide Chelates
