Biological Activity for Laurdan

Laurdan is a polarity sensitive fluorescent probe for imaging lipid rafts in membranes (also known as lipid microdomains). It is suitable for use with generalized polarization (GP) imaging and scanning fluorescence correlation spectroscopy (FCS). Laurdan can be used to image lipids in live and fixed cells as well as in whole tissues with multiphoton microscopy. Laurdan has emission maxima of 440 nm and 490 nm in gel and liquid phase membranes, respectively.
