NovaFluor Blue 510 Dye

NovaFluor dyes, including NovaFluor Blue 510 dye, are built using Phiton technology and are compatible with both spectral flow cytometry as well as traditional flow cytometry. NovaFluor dyes exhibit narrow emission spectra and minimal cross-laser excitation, reducing spectral spillover for better marker resolution. In addition, their unique spectral signatures can provide the opportunity to detect additional markers in flow cytometry panels by opening up previously unusable channels.

NovaFluor Blue 510 dye can be used as an alternative to BD Horizon Brilliant Blue (BB515) with a similar excitation spectrum and a cleaner emission spectrum. For example, in flow cytometry panels that include both FITC and BB515, replacing BB515 with NovaFluor Blue 510 dye reduces the complexity score, thus simplifying spectral unmixing of the panel. NovaFluor Blue 510 dye should generally be paired with highly expressed antigens to minimize spectral spillover in complex multicolor panels. With distinct spectral signatures, NovaFluor Blue 510, NovaFluor Blue 530, and NovaFluor Blue 555 dyes can be used together in a flow cytometry panel. The macromolecule-based NovaFluor Blue 510 dye produces highly stable fluorescence, and stained samples retain their fluorescence intensity and spectral signature when stored at 4°C.

Benefits of NovaFluor Blue 510 dye:

  • Narrow emission spectrum and minimal cross-laser excitation for better resolution
  • Can serve as a replacement for BB515 with a cleaner emission spectrum, reducing spectral spillover
  • Can be used in a flow cytometry panel with NovaFluor Blue 530 and NovaFluor Blue 555 dyes
  • Produces highly stable fluorescence and is compatible with all buffers tested

Use NovaFluor dyes with CellBlox Monocyte and Macrophage Blocking Buffer to block non-specific binding of NovaFluor labels, PE and APC tandems observed with macrophages and monocytes.
