  • Thiazole Orange 10 mM in DMSO, 100 uL
  • Anhydrous DMSO, 250 uL

Spectral Properties

  • Live-or-Dye™ 568/583 Ex/Em 568/583 nm
  • Thiazole Orange Ex/Em 512/533 nm

How It Works

Live-or-Dye™ 568/583 is a cell membrane impermeable amine-reactive dye. It is able to enter into dead cells that have compromised membrane integrity and covalently label free amines on intracellular proteins. This dye labeling is extremely stable, allowing the cells to be fixed and permeabilized without loss of fluorescence or dye transfer between cells. It is suitable for detection by fluorescence microscopy or flow cytometry.

Thiazole Orange is a green fluorescent dye that localizes to the cytoplasm, with some nuclear accumulation. It is fixable, resulting in diffuse cytoplasmic staining in fixed cells.

After staining yeast with this kit, both living and dead cells will be stained with green fluorescence. Only dead cells will be stained with red fluorescence.
