Create mode – the default mode when you create a requisition and PunchOut to Bio-Rad. You can create and edit multiple shopping carts
Edit mode – allows you to edit or modify an existing requisition (prior to submitting). You will be able to modify only the cart that you have PunchedOut to, and won't have access to any other carts
Inspect mode – when you PunchOut to Bio-Rad from a previously created requisition but without initiating an Edit session, you will be in this mode. You cannot modify any Cart contents

Easy-to-use nuclear dye
Use PureBlu Hoechst 33342 Dye for routine nuclear staining in Cell Imaging applications and Fluorescence Microscopy. It is available as a ready-to-reconstitute, highly pure powder form, with only one dilution step required to obtain a ready-to-use solution.
Hoechst 33342 is a well-characterized blue-emitting fluorescent compound widely used for nuclear staining. As a DNA minor groove binding compound, it can permeate cell membranes therefore preferentially stain nuclei (Figure 1).

The excitation and emission wavelength of PureBlu Hoechst 33342 Dye when bound to double stranded DNA are shown in Fig 2. The Stokes shift between excitation and emission wavelengths is large making it an excellent choice for nuclear counterstaining in Immunofluorescence Microscopy, especially when spectral separation is required to reduce fluorescence overlap.

Use PureBlu Hoechst 33342 Nuclear Staining Dye with fixed and unfixed cells. It has increased permeability toward intact cell membranes when compared to DAPI and therefore is preferred when using unfixed samples.
To determine cell viability we also offer the non membrane permeable DNA-binding cell staining dyes 7-AAD and propidium iodide, in ready-to-use formulations and fixable VivaFix™ Cell Viability Assays in a range of excitation and emission spectra to enable easy incorporation into multi-color Flow Cytometry panels.
