StarBright Red Dyes are perfect replacements for APC and APC tandems in your flow cytometry experiments. They are bright, with unique spectra, not photosensitive, and can be fixed in both formaldehyde and alcohol-based fixatives with minimal changes in performance and spectra, making these dyes an excellent choice for both conventional and full spectrum flow cytometry.

StarBright Red Dyes can be used either with/without a special buffer depending on the requirements of the fluorophores that the StarBright Red Dyes are multiplexed with, offering you flexibility when building panels. 

Figure 2 shows how they can be used to identify cell subsets in human peripheral blood.

CD19SBUV665 (MCA1940SBUV665), CD3PE (MCA463PE), CD8SBV790 (MCA1226SBV790), CD45RASBV670 (MCA88SBV670), CD45ROSBUV795 (MCA461SBUV795) and CD4SBR670, or B. CD14PE-A750 (MCA1568P750), CD57FITC (MCA1305) and CD4 SBR775. Cells were gated on live, single cells (not shown) and analyzed on the ZE5 Cell Analyzer.
