Expanding options for violet laser-excitable antibody conjugates

Super Bright dyes vs. Brilliant Violet dyes for flow cytometry

  • Super Bright antibody conjugates have comparable brightness to Brilliant Violet™ conjugates 
  • Both can be utilized in flow cytometry applications, typically without a need to adjust standard workflows
  • Both dye families are violet laser–excitable polymer dyes
  • Both require use of a special buffer to reduce nonspecific dye-dye interactions when two or more polymer-dye antibody conjugates are used
