Bio-Rad introduces new dyes for flow cytometry

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

Key benefits of StarBright Dyes include compatibility with new and existing protocols and suitable for use in multiplex panels; they are said to be resistant to photobleaching and highly stable with minimal lot-to-lot variation; they are also designed to offer reliable Förster resonance energy transfer (FRET) for reproducible data; they work with common staining buffers and they offer narrow excitation and emission profiles for improved resolution in new and existing multicolour flow cytometry experiments.
