pHrodo™ Red S. aureus Bioparticles™ Conjugate for Phagocytosis

Back to top

Description

New pH-sensitive pHrodo® Red dye conjugates give faster and more accurate results than any other phagocytosis assay pHrodo® Red dye conjugates are non-fluorescent outside the cell, but fluoresce brightly red in phagosomes.

Get faster staining and more accurate results without the need for wash steps or quencher dye
• Specific detection of phagocytosis and endocytosis
• Reduced signal variability and improved timing in sensitive experiments
• Multiplex with green dyes such as GFP, Fluo-4, or calcein

The fluorescence of the novel pHrodo® Red dye dramatically increases as pH decreases from neutral to the acidic, making it an ideal tool to study phagocytosis and its regulation by drugs and/or environmental factors. The lack of fluorescence outside the cell eliminates the need for wash steps and quencher dyes. Use the ready-made pHrodo® Red S. aureus BioParticles® conjugates in imaging or flow applications, or pHrodo® Red SE, the activated succinimidyl ester, for labeling microorganisms or proteins of your choice.
