Comparable to Brilliant Violet 605 conjugates

Invitrogen eBioscience Super Bright 600 antibody conjugates for flow cytometry provide:

Multiplexing with Super Bright 600 antibody conjugates

Figure 1. Staining performance and post-fixation stability. (A) Comparison of mouse splenocytes stained with CD8a antibody conjugated to either Super Bright 600 (red, Cat. No. 63-0081-82) or Brilliant Violet™ 605 conjugate (gray), at the same antibody concentration. (B) Mouse splenocytes were stained with CD45R antibody conjugated to Super Bright 600 (Cat. No. 63-0452-82) and either left unfixed (red), or were fixed in Invitrogen eBioscience IC Fixation Buffer (Cat. No. 00-8222-49) for 30 minutes (blue), 24 hours (orange), or 3 days (green).

Multiplexing compatibilityBufferMultiplexing considerations
Multiplexing with 1 Super Bright antibody conjugateStandard buffers applicableNo special buffer required when only one Super Bright antibody conjugate is used in a panel
Multiplexing with 2 or more Super Bright antibody conjugatesSuper Bright Staining BufferSpecial staining buffer is required prior to addition of Super Bright conjugates to reduce non-specific dye-dye interactions
Multiplexing with 1 or more Brilliant Violet™ antibody conjugatesSuper Bright Staining BufferSpecial staining buffer is required to reduce non-specific dye-dye interactions. Use of the Super Bright Staining Buffer is recommended, but the similar Brilliant Stain Buffer can be substituted

Figure 2. Multiplex flow cytometry experiment. Normal human peripheral blood cells were diluted in Super Bright Staining Buffer, then surface stained with the indicated reagents. Viable cells (determined using a fixable viability stain) were used for analysis to discriminate various T cell subsets.
