Cell functional assays: dyes and reagents
Simultaneously analyze multiple proteins, gene expression, and cell functions such as oxidation, viability, cell cycle, apoptosis, and proliferation from an individual cell with fluorescent flow cytometry assays, reagents, and antibodies. This technology makes it possible to obtain a statistically relevant amount of data by combining information from individual cells to gain insight into a heterogeneous sample. We offer flow cytometry assays and reagents that span a broad range of research applications and areas including cell health and function assays as well as RNA detection assays.

Figure 1. Cell function workflow with flow cytometry reagents. Use the chart to determine which assays can be incorporated into a panel. Fluorophore reagents can be used to label cell functionalities such as viability and mitochondrial oxidation. These reagents and assays can be incorporated into a flow cytometry panel just like a flow cytometry antibody.
