Description

Ghost Dye™ Violet 510 is an amine reactive viability dye that can be used to discriminate viable from non-viable mammalian cells in flow cytometry applications. This dye irreversibly binds free amines available on the cell surface as well as intracellular free amines exposed in cells with compromised cell membranes. Necrotic cells with compromised membranes will react with significantly more Ghost Dye™ Violet 510 dye than viable cells in the same sample and therefore will exhibit much greater fluorescence intensity allowing exclusion of these cells from analysis.

I recently obtained an aliquot of Ghost Dye 510 from my core flow lab. I titrated the reagent against a mixture of heat-killed and untreated PBMC. Spooooky Bright! I will be replacing my current Live/Dead indicator with the Ghost Dye 510.
