- Uses a DNA-specific dye so there is no need to use RNase.
- The dye crosses membranes so there is no need to permeabilize or fix the cells. This also means you can use live cells.
- No wash needed, simply add and read for fast, easily automated workflow.
- Multiplex with other MultiCyt kits like Cell Membrane Integrity for richer content.
The Cell Cycle Kit utilizes a DNA binding dye to enable the creation of a cell cycle profile and the quantification of the relative percentage of cells in each phase of the cell cycle.
Cells stained with the cell cycle dye will fluoresce in proportion to their DNA content.
