Product Description

NucSpot® 470 Nuclear Stain is a green cell membrane-impermeant, nuclear-specific counterstain for the FITC channel.

  • Nuclear-specific counterstain for fixed cells
  • Selectively stains dead cells in live culture
  • No wash required
  • Suitable for cell cycle profiling by flow cytometry in fixed/permeabilized cells

Note: NucSpot® 470 has limited use for cell viability tracking due to its instability in culture medium during long incubation periods. NucSpot® 500/515 was designed as an improved alternative for NucSpot® 470, offering better stability in culture medium.

Biotium also offers NucSpot® Nuclear Stains in a wide range of other colors from orange to near-IR. The stains also offer nuclear-specific counterstaining for fixed cells, as well as selective staining of dead cells in live cultures, while avoiding the issue of photoconversion induced background by DAPI and Hoechst.
