BactoView™ Live Fluorescent Bacterial Stains
Live cell bacteria stains, suitable for flow cytometry or fluorescence microscopy. Stain live and dead, gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria with green or red fluorescence.
BactoView™ Live dyes are fluorogenic live cell bacterial DNA stains. Bright and cell-permeant, they are able to stain both live and dead gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria for microscopy or flow cytometry.
- DNA dyes for bacteria
- Stain live and dead, gram-positive and gram-negative cells
- Choose green or red fluorescence
- Supplied at 500X in DMSO
BactoView™ Live dyes can stain both live and dead bacteria; dead cells tend to stain more brightly than live cells. BactoView™ Live Green can stain mammalian cell nuclei, but BactoView™ Live Red shows weak mitochondrial signal in mammalian cells. In yeast, staining with either BactoView™ Live dye is weak and not nuclear. See our Cellular Stains Table for more information on how our dyes stain various organisms.
