Ex: 401 nm. Em: 459 nm. Soluble in: DMSO. Our Nuclear Violet(TM) LCS1 is a fluorogenic, DNA-selective and cell-permeant dye for analyzing DNA content in living cells. The Nuclear Violet(TM) LCS1 has its blue fluorescence significantly enhanced upon binding to DNA. It can be used in fluorescence imaging, microplate and flow cytometry applications. It is well excited by violet laser at 405 nm, and emits blue/cyan fluorescence light around an emission maximum at ~440 nm, and provides an excellent tool for flow cytometers equipped with a 405 nm violet laser source. This DNA-binding dye might be used for multicolor analysis of live cells with the filter sets of Pacific Blue and BD Horizon V450.
