Krome Orange from Beckman Coulter Heightens Sensitivity in Multi-color Flow Cytometry. New Dye's Emission Spectrum Closely Resembles Pacific Orange.
BREA, Calif. -- (Sept. 16, 2010) -- Beckman Coulter, Inc. introduces Krome Orange, a novel violet-excited organic dye that expands the range of available choices and dye sensitivity limits for violet lasers. Common gating markers can be easily transferred to this fluorochrome, freeing other channels for use with more esoteric markers and enabling more versatile 10-color flow cytometry applications. http://pharmalive.com/News/index.cfm?articleid=729978&categoryid=54
