Product Information

Phantom Dye Violet 540 is a fixable viability dye which reacts with protein amine groups in both dead and live cells. Due to the compromised cell membrane in dead cells the dye can bind to many more proteins inside the cell, resulting in much higher fluorescence and easy differentation of Live/Dead cells. Phantom Dye Violet 540 is a water soluble violet fluorescent dye excited by the Violet laser (405 nm), emitting at 540 nm, making it an excellent addition to your multicolor panel.
