NovaFluor dyes, including NovaFluor Red 660 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 Red 660 dye has excitation and emission spectra similar to those of allophycocyanin (APC) and Alexa Fluor 647 dye. When excited by the red 640 nm laser line, the spectral spread of NovaFluor Red 660 is about half that of APC while maintaining similar brightness. The macromolecule-based NovaFluor Red 660 dye produces highly stable fluorescence, and stained samples retain their fluorescence intensity and spectral signature when stored at 4°C.
Benefits of NovaFluor Red 660 dye:
- Narrow emission spectrum and minimal cross-laser excitation for better resolution
- Bright fluorescence allows it to be paired with medium-to-low abundance antigens
- Can serve as a replacement for APC with a cleaner emission spectrum, reducing spectral spillover for better marker resolution
- Can be used in a flow cytometry panel with NovaFluor Red 685 or NovaFluor Red 700 dye
- 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.
