SYTOX™ AADvanced™ Dead Cell Stain (S10274, S10349) is a new high-affinity nucleic acid stain for the detection of dead cells and analysis of cell cycle using the common 488 nm blue laser in flow cytometry. The dye is spectrally similar to 7-AAD but with rapid kinetics of uptake and relatively low CVs. SYTOX™ AADvanced™ Dead Cell Stain penetrates cells more efficiently than 7-AAD providing better separation of live and dead cells. SYTOX™ AADvanced™ Dead Cell Stain can also be used with fixed cells for DNA content analysis when paired with RNAse treatment. SYTOX™ AADvanced™ Dead Cell Stain Kits contain a vial(s) of dried dye and anhydrous DMSO providing stable shelf life.
