Bio-Rad StarBright Blue and StarBright Yellow Dyes
Bio-Rad Laboratories has launched StarBright Blue and StarBright Yellow dyes for flow cytometry applications. The dyes feature exceptional brightness with narrow excitation and emission profiles for precise resolution using blue (488 nm) and yellow (561 nm) lasers, Bio-Rad said. StarBright Blue Dyes 580, 615, 675, 700, 765, and 810 are excitable by the 488 nm laser, and StarBright Yellow Dyes 575, 605, 665, 720, and 800 by the 561 nm laser, with low background. Each dye in the StarBright range is conjugated to flow-validated antibodies, supporting flow cytometry panel design in immunology research, the company said.
