NovaFluor Yellow 610 dye

NovaFluor dyes, including NovaFluor Yellow 610 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 Yellow 610 dye can be used to replace PE/Dazzle™ 594, BD Horizon™ PE-CF594, or PE-Texas Red dye using the 561 nm yellow laser line for excitation. As compared with these PE tandem dyes, NovaFluor Yellow 610 dye shows much less cross-excitation and lower spectral spillover with the 488 nm blue laser line, allowing detection of an additional marker labeled with, for example, one of the NovaFluor Blue 610 dyes. The macromolecule-based NovaFluor Yellow 610 dyes produce highly stable fluorescence, and stained samples retain their fluorescence intensity and spectral signature when stored at 4°C.

Benefits of NovaFluor Yellow 610 dye:

  • Narrow emission spectrum and minimal cross-laser excitation for better resolution
  • Can serve as a replacement for PE-tandem dyes using the yellow-green laser, with far less cross-laser excitation and spectral spillover
  • Single PE-tandems can be replaced by NovaFluor Blue 610 and NovaFluor Yellow 610 dyes, to allow detection of an additional marker in a flow cytometry panel
  • 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.
