Hoechst 33342, 10 mg/mL in H2O
For ease of use and safer handling, we offer both Hoechst 33258 and Hoechst 33342 dissolved in H2O at 10 mg/mL. Hoechst dyes are cell membrane-permeant, minor groove-binding blue fluorescent DNA stains.
Live Bacterial Gram Stain Kit
Wheat germ agglutinin binds specifically to N-acetylglucosamine in the peptidoglycan layer of gram-positive bacteria. The Live Bacterial Gram Stain Kit contains wheat germ agglutinin (WGA) conjugated to CF®594 to stain the surface of gram-positive cells with red fluorescence. The kit also includes DAPI to stain the DNA of all bacteria with blue fluorescence.
Viability/Cytotoxicity Assay kit for Bacteria Live and Dead Cells
This kit provides two-color fluorescence staining of both live bacteria (green) and dead bacteria (red) using two dyes, DMAO and EthD-III.
