easy to use kit with improved results
Application Area: Flow cytometric ploidy/genome size determination
"The new Cystain kit is intended to help with plant tissue samples which are prone to oxidation and the flow cytometric measurements are affected by these oxidative changes. Recently we tested this product and we did not see the typical discoloration of the cell suspensions, which are typical when the samplea are oxidized, and the histograms were fine, so I will keep using this product."
CyStain PI OxProtect
Reagent kit for nuclei extraction and DNA staining of nuclear DNA from plant tissues to determine absolute and relative genome size and ploidy level. CyStain PI OxProtect is especially formulated to prevent oxidation and degradation processes triggered by endogenous plant tissue oxidants. The reagent has been created specifically for selected configurations of the Sysmex CyFlow Ploidy Analyser and CyFlow Space flow cytometers.
