Cell viability assays for flow cytometry are reliable methods to distinguish live and dead cell populations. Removing dead and dying cells from your flow cytometry data is critical to enable the accuracy of your results and analysis. Dead cells often give false positive results, as a compromised cell membrane allows for internalization and non-specific binding of many reagents.
Flow cytometry viability stains are available for use with fixable and non-fixable cell samples in a broad range of color options that are compatible with most instrument configurations.
