Live Cell Imaging

Antifade reagent for use in live cell imaging

Whereas immunostaining provides a snapshot in time of a cell or tissue, live cell imaging allows you to observe biological processes over time. Our VectaCell reagent enhances your live cell imaging studies that use conventional or super-resolution fluorescence microscopy, immunocytochemistry, in situ hybridization, or neurobiology applications.

VectaCell Trolox Antifade Reagent reduces phototoxicity and photobleaching of reagents to increase cell viability and prolong signal.


Producing immunofluorescence (IF) staining results with high specificity and sensitivity begins with choosing the best reagents. This guide will help you:

  • Learn about the IF workflow and how to optimize each step
  • Quickly identify and choose the most appropriate fluorescent secondary conjugates
  • Select the best anti-fade medium to preserve your fluorescence signal for imaging and archiving
