Live Cell/Dead Cell Discrimination

It is critical to understand the degree of cell death in any flow cytometry assay and exclude those cells from the analysis. BioLegend provides DNA dyes, Propidium Iodide and 7-AAD, that enter and stain dead cells, but are impermeable to live cells for rapid, cost-effective analysis of unfixed cells. In cases where cell fixation is required, we now introduce fixable Zombie Aqua™, Zombie Green™, Zombie NIR™, Zombie Red™, Zombie Violet™, Zombie UV™, and Zombie Yellow™.
