MeWo Human Melanoma Expressing Far-Red TagFP635

The MeWo Human Melanoma Expressing Far-Red TagFP635 is For Research Use Only

Human malignant melanoma cells have been stably transfected to express the far-red fluorescent TagFP635. The cells show a strong far-red fluorescence without changing the original morphology or growth pattern. Thus, they are an ideal model to be used in preclinical tumor research to test new anti-cancer therapeutics. The biophysical properties of TurboFP635 are especially favorable for applications such as bio-imaging of tumor progression in real time (e.g. tracing and measuring tumors in vivo).
