NovaFluor Blue 610 dyes are available with two different levels of brightness: NovaFluor Blue 610-30S and NovaFluor Blue 610-70S, allowing for differential matching of the dye brightness to the antigen density or abundance, without panel redesign. NovaFluor Blue 610-70S dye is the brighter dye.

NovaFluor Blue 610-70S dye can be used to replace PE/Dazzle 594, BD Horizon PE-CF594, or PE-Texas Red dye using the 488 nm blue laser line for excitation. As compared with these PE tandem dyes, NovaFluor Blue 610-70S dye shows much less cross-excitation and lower spectral spillover with the 561 nm yellow-green laser line, allowing detection of an additional marker labeled with, for example, NovaFluor Yellow 610 dye. The macromolecule-based NovaFluor Blue 610 dyes produce highly stable fluorescence, and stained samples retain their fluorescence intensity and spectral signature when stored at 4°C. Use NovaFluor dyes with CellBlox Plus Blocking Buffer to block non-specific binding of NovaFluor labels, PE and APC tandems observed with macrophages and monocytes.

NovaFluor Blue 610-70S dye background

NovaFluor dyes, including NovaFluor Blue 610 dyes, 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.

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.
