7-aminoactinomycin-D

Purpose

  • Staining dead cells

Procurement

Use

  • 546/647
  • Nucleic acid dye
  • Often used in conjunction with Annexin-V when assaying for apoptotic cells
  • "The advantage of 7-AAD over PI is the ability to be used in conjunction with phycoerythrin (PE)- and fluorescein isothiocyanate (FITC)-labeled monoclonal antibodies in 2-color analysis, with minimal spectral overlap between 7-AAD, PE and FITC fluorescence emissions. The 7-AAD fluorescence is detected in the far red range of the spectrum (650 nm long-pass filter).

Safety
