Bacteria with compromised membranes open the access for TPE-2BA, a fluorophore with aggregation-induced emission characteristics, to approach their DNA. Such interaction selectively lights up dead bacteria. Possessing high brightness, excellent photostability, and appreciable biocompatibility, TPE-2BA represents a well-suited candidate for long-term tracking of bacterial viability and for bactericide screening.
