We received a request of one of our customers. He likes a kit for bacteria viability, I found invitrogen L7007/L7012, but, in abcam there is ab112121 that is similar (I think). I would like to know if you could send us a protocol for use in bacteria of ab112121 or could I suggest same protocol that Invitrogen?

Thank you for contacting us.
Yes, it should work theoretically. For dead cells, the dye is same in ab112121 and Invitrogen L-7007. For live cells, the working principle is different. Ab112121 is for labeling only live cells, Invitrogen's for both live and dead. You can use the same protocol as mammalian cells. see the link below.
I hope this information is helpful to you. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need any more advice or information.
