Using CFDA-SE in Your Lab

Carboxyfluorescein diacetate succinimidyl ester, or CFDA-SE, is a fluorescent dye used to stain and label cells to track their division. CFDA-SE is cell permeable, meaning it can cross the cell membrane and stay there for long periods of time. Once inside the cell, CFDA-SE reacts with amine groups on proteins to create a stable fluorescent…
