Graphical abstract A novel indole mono-styryl BODIPY was synthesised and characterized for the colorimetric recognition of Cu2+. It was also revealed from this study 3 can passively diffuse through cell membrane and stain both bacterial and mammalian cells even in very low concentrations. BODIPY-indole 3 retains inside the cells in cytometry and can be further modified for other applications.
