SYTOX™ Dead Cell Stain Sampler Kit contains sample sizes of five nucleic acid stains to identify the most appropriate satin to work in multi-color experiments. Stains include: SYTOX Blue (for the 405 nm violet laser), SYTOX Green (for the 488 nm blue laser with green emission), SYTOX Orange (for the 532 nm green laser), SYTOX AADvanced (for the 488 nm blue laser with red emission), and SYTOX Red (for the 633/5 nm red laser).
All SYTOX Dead Cell Stains are cell impermeant nucleic acid stains. By flow cytometry, dead cells can be easily distinguished from live cells by the increased fluorescent signal due to dsDNA binding of SYTOX™ dyes. Because they are non-fluorescent in aqueous media, SYTOX Dead Cell Stains can be applied to cells and visualized with minimal background staining and without an additional wash step.
