Moxi Cyte AOPI Reagent


SKU: Moxi Cyte AOPI Reagent - MXA069 - ORFLO Category:


Acridine Orange (AO) is a cell-permeant dye that stains nucleic acids (RNA and DNA), providing a means of generically labeling nucleated cells in samples. When bound to DNA, AO can be excited with a 488nm laser and will fluorescently emit at a 525nm maximum, making it well-suited for detection with the PMT1 (525/45nm) channel of the Moxi GO II. The cells can be counterstained with Propidium Iodide (PI) to simultaneously determine the sample viability using the well-established membrane permeability metric.

Applications: Simultaneous live nucleated, dead cell counts
