Product Description

This kit provides a two-color fluorescence staining on both live bacteria (green) and dead bacteria (red) using two probes DMAO and EthD-III. DMAO is a green-fluorescent nucleic acid dye which stains both live and dead bacteria. EthD-III is a red-fluorescent nucleic acid dye that selectively stains dead bacteria with damaged cell membranes. With an appropriate mixture of DMAO and EthD-III, bacteria with intact cell membranes show green fluorescence, whereas bacteria with damaged cell membranes show red fluorescence. The kit is suitable for use with fluorescence microscopes and flow cytometers. The assay principles are general and applicable to most bacteria types. For 100 flow cytometry assays or 1000 microscopy assays.

Kit Components:

  • 2 vials (100 uL/vial): DMAO, 5 mM
  • 2 vials (150 uL/vial): Ethidium Homodimer-III (EthD-III), 2 mM

Features:

  • Dual Detection: Detect live and dead bacteria cells in a cell population simultaneously
  • Simple & Fast: 15 min dye loading and measure without washing
  • Economic: Perform viability and cytotoxicity assays at the same time
  • Versatile: Analysis compatible with flow cytometers and fluorescence microscopes using popular settings for fluorescein and propidium iodide.

    Live-or-Dye™ Fixable Viability Staining Kits

    Live-or-Dye™ Fixable Viability Staining Kits are designed for discrimination between live and dead cells during flow cytometry. Live/dead stains are useful probes to include when analyzing cell surface protein expression by flow cytometry, because they allow intracellular fluorescence signal from dead cells with permeable plasma membranes to be excluded from analysis.

    Bacterial Viability and Gram Stain Kit

    The Bacterial Viability and Gram Stain Kit contains three components: CF®488A-WGA, DAPI, and EthD-III solutions for distinguishing between gram-negative and gram-positive, as well as live versus dead bacteria.

    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.
