Bio-Rad Laboratories announced the launch of the StarBright™ Blue-series and StarBright Yellow-series dyes to provide greater flexibility in conventional and full spectrum flow cytometry applications. As explained by the company, the dyes expand research capabilities across the blue (488 nm) and yellow (561 nm) lasers. Each dye in the Bio-Rad range of StarBright Dyes is conjugated to flow-validated antibodies, supporting flow cytometry panel design in immunology research. StarBright Blue Dyes 580, 615, 675, 700, 765, and 810 are excitable by the 488 nm laser, and StarBright Yellow Dyes 575, 605, 665, 720, and 800 by the 561 nm laser, with low background. StarBright Dyes are compatible with most experimental protocols and flow cytometers, including the Bio-Rad ZE5 Cell Analyzer.
