iQue® Cell Membrane Integrity Dyes
January 05, 2016
- Different dye options give you more ways to measure cell death.
- No wash protocol, just add and read for fast, easily automated workflow.
- Multiplex with other iQue® kits like iQue® Cell Cycle for richer content.
Each iQue® Cell Membrane Integrity Dyes consists of a spectrally distinct proprietary dye that is taken up by cells with compromised membranes and excluded by healthy cells with intact membranes. The iQue® Cell Membrane Integrity Dyes can be multiplexed with other iQue® reagents.
The iQue® Cell Membrane Integrity Dyes are fluorescent molecules that are cell impermeant. Healthy cells with intact cell membranes will exclude the dyes. Unhealthy cells with compromised membranes will allow entry of the dye into the intracellular space. Upon entry to the cell, the dye localizes to the nucleus and binds to DNA by intercalation.
