SYTOX™ Red dead cell stain is a simple and quantitative single-step dead-cell indicator for use with red laser-equipped flow cytometers. SYTOX™ Red dead cell stain is a high-affinity nucleic acid stain that easily penetrates cells with compromised plasma membranes but will not cross uncompromised cell membranes. After brief incubation with SYTOX™ Red stain, the nucleic acids of dead cells fluoresce bright red when excited with 633 or 635nm red laser light. SYTOX™ Red dead cell stain is distinct from other dead cell probes like 7-AAD and PI, which are excited using 488 nm. The emission of SYTOX™ Red stain is limited to one channel with minimal spectral overlap. This effectively frees all the channels of the 488 nm laser line. SYTOX™ Red dead cell stain is supplied as a 5 µM solution in dimethylsulfoxide (DMSO) in a unit size of 1mL.
