BioLegend Live/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.

BIO-RAD 7-AAD Solution

The ReadiDrop™ 7-aminoactinomycin D (7-AAD) cell viability assay is designed as a ready-to-use 7-AAD solution, which binds double-stranded DNA with a high-affinity intercalation between GC base pairs.


Apoptosis, a form of programed cell death, is directed by activated caspases. Caspases are cysteine proteases that can cleave other proteins, and upon activation, create a positive-feedback cascade, which ensures the cell will undergo apoptosis.

BioLegend Cell Health & Proliferation

While some assays utilize antibodies to study cell health, proliferation, cell cycle or apoptosis, other types of experiments can rely on non-antibody based methods of assessment, often called non-antibody chemical probes. These are reagents that localize to an organelle or indicate health based on chemical characteristics like hydrophobicity, charge, size and enzymatic activation.

BIO-RAD Fixable Viability Dyes

VivaFix™ Cell Viability Assays enable researchers to accurately discriminate between live and dead cells in fixed or unfixed samples by cell staining prior to flow cytometry, cell sorting and microscopy.

BIO-RAD Nuclear Staining Dyes

PureBlu™ Nuclear Staining Dyes are designed to specifically stain the nuclei of cells in fixed and unfixed samples for fluorescence microscopy and cell imaging applications

BIO-RAD FLISP Serine Protease Detection Kits

Detecting Apoptosis

Apoptosis, a programmed cell death mechanism, is an essential process in embryogenesis and development. The process is also critical for ensuring an organism’s health by removing aberrant or damaged cells.

BIO-RAD Propidium Iodide Solution

Commonly used in flow cytometry experiments for excluding dead cells, the propidium iodide solution enters a compromised cell and binds to double-stranded DNA/RNA by intercalating between base pairs.

BIO-RAD Cell Viability Assays

Bio-Rad offers a broad range of easy-to-use and versatile cell viability assays for assessing the cell health of fixed and unfixed cells in flow cytometry and cell sorting experiments.

BIO-RAD Cell Viability Products
