Yeast Live-or-Dye™ Fixable Live/Dead Staining Kit
The Yeast Live-or-Dye™ Fixable Live/Dead Staining Kit is a fixable, fluorescent assay to determine yeast viability. The kit contains two fluorescent components, Thiazole Orange and Live-or-Dye™ 568/583.
ViaVac™ Red/Green is a fluorescent viability dye for yeast, identical in structure to the dye FUN® 1. ViaVac passively diffuses into cells, showing green cytoplasmic staining.
Calcofluor White Stain, 5 mM in Water
Calcofluor White is a fluorescent blue dye that binds to cellulose and chitin, which can be found in the cell walls of fungi, algae, and plants. In budding yeast Calcofluor White stains bud scars more strongly, because they have a higher concentration of chitin.
Thiazole Orange, 10 mM in DMSO
Thiazole orange (TO) is commonly used in reticulocyte analysis to stain residual RNA of blood cells, to stain DNA in agarose gels and capillary electrophoresis. Thiazole Orange stains the yeast nucleus, and is also able to stain bacteria and mammalian cells.
Concanavalin A (Con A) CF® Dye Conjugates
This product is concanavalin A (Con A) labeled with our superior fluorescent CF® dyes. Con A is a widely used lectin that selectively binds to a-mannopyranosyl and a-glucopyranosy residues, found in the cell wall of yeast and fungi, and the cell membrane of mammalian cells.
