Cell Proliferation Staining Reagent - Blue Fluorescence (Ex 405 nm) | Cytopainter (ab176726) is a powerful tool to analyze heterogeneous cell populations where multicolor analysis is required. This reagent is designed to label cells at Ex/Em = 403/454 nm excited with a violet laser at Ex = 405 nm.
The CytoLabeling Blue Reagent dye contained in this kit is functionally similar to CFSE and can be used for the multicolor applications where either GFP or FITC-labeled antibody is used, since the CytoLabeling Reagents staining reagents have either excitation and emission spectra distinct from CFSE and its fluorescein analogs.
Main features of CytoLabeling Blue Reagent:
- It eliminates the dye efflux drawback associated with CFSE
- It is compatible with the cell culture medium in the staining cells prior analysis - no washing required
- It is retained up to 9 generations after staining
- Fluorescence is preserved upon formaldehyde fixation
This product can be used for imaging or flow cytometric analysis.
