EasyProbes™ Green 488 Live Cell Stain


EasyProbes™ Green 488 Live Cell Stain is a cell-permeant stain that emits exceptionally bright, green fluorescence when bound to DNA. Our EasyProbes™ Green 488 Live Cell Stain is formulated in a ready-to-use solution that is provided in a convenient-to-use dropper bottle. Just tip and drip two drops per ml to stain your cells. 


  • No need to dilute, weigh, or pipette
  • Convenient dropper bottle—just use two drops per mL
  • Rapid staining of cells and tissue samples without wash steps


Suggestions for use
• EasyProbes™ Green 488 reagent may be added directly to cells in full media or buffer solutions.
• It easily stains nuclei of cells and tissue slices

In most cases 2 drops/ml and an incubation of 15 to 30 minutes will give bright nuclear staining; however, optimization may be needed for some cell types, conditions, and applications. In such cases simply add more, or fewer drops until the optimal staining intensity is obtained.
• EasyProbes™ Green 488 Live Cell Stain is excited with a maximum at 500 nm when bound to DNA, with an emission maximum at 530 nm. It is detected through standard GFP and FITC filters.
