Comparing Triangulenium to Current Contrasting Dyes

Caption: Emission intensity images of human breast cancer cells, contrasting triangulenium dyes and the state-of-the-art long emission lifetime dyes. Where the state-of-the-art has completely stopped emitting at 30 ns, triangulenium still gives clear images after 30 nanoseconds and continues shining until the 100 nanosecond mark.
