NovaFluor dyes, including NovaFluor Blue 585 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, which helps reduce 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 585 dye has a unique emission spectrum when excited by the 488nm laser, which fits in between NovaFluor Blue 555 and NovaFluor Blue 610, potentially allowing the detection of an additional marker in a complex multicolor panel. NovaFluor Blue 585 dye should generally be paired with highly expressed antigens to minimize spectral spillover in complex multicolor panels. The macromolecule-based NovaFluor Blue 585 dye produces highly stable fluorescence, and stained samples retain their fluorescence intensity and spectral signature when stored at 4°C.
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.
We offer NovaFluor dyes conjugated to primary antibodies for use in flow cytometry, as well as NovaFluor Antibody Conjugation Kits, NovaFluor CD4 Label Characterization Kits, and custom conjugation services.
