Bio-Rad introduces three StarBright dyes for flow cytometry

They are compatible with Bio-Rad’s ZE5 Cell Analyzer, S3e Cell Sorter, and other conventional and spectral flow cytometers

Bio-Rad Laboratories has introduced three StarBright Dyes designed for flow cytometry applications.

StarBright Violet 570, 670, and 710 Dyes are designed to offer improved brightness and precise excitation and emission spectra, making them suitable for use in multicolour flow cytometry panels. Bio-Rad’s line of StarBright Dyes offers researchers a range of fluorescent nanoparticles conjugated to highly validated flow antibodies.

The company claims the dyes offer improved brightness when compared to other available dyes at similar wavelengths, and says they may be used with a wide range of flow cytometers. The profile of the dyes is designed to offer enhanced resolution of rare populations and low-density antigens as well as consistent and reproducible staining.

The dyes are also compatible with protocols and suitable for use in multiplex panels, they’re resistant to photobleaching and highly stable with minimal lot-to-lot variation and also offer reliable Förster resonance energy transfer (FRET) for reproducible data, according to the company.

They are compatible with Bio-Rad’s ZE5 Cell Analyzer, S3e Cell Sorter, and other conventional and spectral flow cytometers.
