Cell permeable green fluorescent dye.

Green CMFDA is a cell-permeable fluorescent probe which transforms into a cell-impermeable, soluble, fluorescent compound within the cell. Cell viability and proliferation are not affected. The reaction product is passed to daughter cells through several generations but is not transferred to adjacent cells in the population. Green CMFDA is brightly fluorescent with standard filters (ex/em max = 492/517 nm) and is often used with additional fluorescent dyes and proteins
