Biotium's green fluorescent mitochondrial dye relies on mitochondrial mass (not on mitochondrial membrane potential) and therefore enables mitochondrial staining in both live and fixed cells. MitoView™ Green is spectrally similar to FITC, making it optimally excitable by the 488 nm argon laser line. Following staining with MitoView™ Green, live cells stained with the dye may then be fixed with formaldehyde.
Benefits of using MitoView™ Green
• Staining relies on mitochondrial mass
