Quick and easy analysis of apoptosis and dead cells

Protein-binding dyes

  • Viobility™ Fixable Dyes for live/dead cell discrimination of apoptotic, necrotic and dead cells in flow cytometry. The dyes react with amine groups on proteins on the cell surface and intracellularly.
  • Annexin V conjugates (FITC, PE, APC, Biotin) for the detection of apoptotic, necrotic, and dead cells by Phosphotidylserine (PS)-labeling on the cell surface.

Nucleic acid-binding dyes

  • Propidium Iodide Solution for cost-effective exclusion of dead cells from flow cytometric analysis.
  • 7-AAD Staining Solution can be used in place of propidium iodide (PI) for the exclusion of dead cells in flow cytometric assays. It´s emission color allows simultaneous analyses with PE- and FITC-labeled antibodies.
  • DAPI Staining Solution allows the assessment of apoptotic cells by binding to double-stranded DNA. It is excited by the ultraviolet and violet lasers and emits blue fluorescence.
  • Hoechst 33342 Staining Solution is a cell permeable nucleic acid stain for the analysis of nucleated cells. It is excited by the ultraviolet and violet lasers and emits blue fluorescence.
  • Staining of dead cells and subsequent fixation can be quickly and easily achieved with the Fixation and Dead Cell Discrimination Kit.
  • The Annexin V-FITC Kit allows simultaneous analysis of apoptotic and dead cells by the combination of Annexin V-FITC and PI.
