Extracellular antibodies are ideal research tools for cell-surface proteins.
No permeabilization/fixation because using extracellular antibodies allows you to work with live cells!
Benefits of live cell imaging:
✓ Monitor cell movement
✓ Study protein transport across the cell
✓ Investigate protein internalization
Alomone Labs is pleased to offer a list of products which are highly recommended to use in LCI. What is LCI? Live Cell Imaging enables you to observe your cell of interests in its living state (such as immunocytochemistry) using Alomone Labs antibodies which are directed against an extracellular epitope. Also, some of these antibodies are available conjugated to a fluorescent dye (ATTO label). This saves you the extra step of using a conjugated secondary antibody. Look for LCI in the application tab!
