Bio-Rad: StarBright Dyes

Bio-Rad has launched three new dyes for flow cytometry in its StarBright line. StarBright Blue 700, StarBright Violet 440, and StarBright Violet 610 consist of fluorescent nanoparticles conjugated to flow antibodies. The dyes offer narrow excitation and emission profiles for improved resolution in flow cytometry experiments. They are also resistant to photobleaching and highly stable, with minimal lot-to-lot variation, according to Bio-Rad, which enables researchers to achieve consistent and reproducible staining. The dyes work with all common staining buffers for easy integration into multicolor panels and the chemistry is designed to ensure no loss of signal in fixation.
