DAPI is a cell permeable fluorescent compound (MW 350.3) that is able to stain the DNA of eukaryotic and prokaryotic cells by binding with high affinity to the minor groove of AT-rich DNA sequences. When DAPI is bound to DNA and excited by an ultraviolet light source, blue fluorescent emission can be detected with maximum emission at 461 nm. PureBlu DAPI has a characteristic Stokes shift of approximately 100 nm, which makes this dye an optimal choice when good spectral separation is desired. PureBlu DAPI is compatible with fixed and unfixed cells.

Reconstitution

Instructions For Use
Note: The optimal concentration for different cell types should be determined empirically.

Staining Procedure - Flow Cytometry Cell Viability

1. Grow cells of interest under conditions specific for the cell type. Harvest cells and obtain a single cell suspension.

2. Check cell numbers and viability using trypan blue.

3. Resuspend cells at 2 x 106 cells/ml in 0.5ml Staining Buffer (BUF073) or 1x PBS.

4. Add 5μl of 100x PureBlu DAPI Dye stock solution to 0.5ml cells.

5. Stain at room temperature for 15 min in the dark.

6. Optional: Rinse cells with Staining Buffer (BUF073) or 1x PBS.

7. Proceed with analysis by flow cytometry. When bound to double-stranded DNA (dsDNA) PureBlu DAPI Dye can be excited with either a 355 nm or a 405 nm laser, with optimum emission at 461nm.


Staining Procedure - Flow Cytometry Cell DNA Content

1. Grow cells of interest under conditions specific for the cell type. Harvest cells and obtain a single cell suspension.

2. Check cell numbers and viability using trypan blue.

3. Wash cells in Staining Buffer (BUF073) or 1x PBS.

4. Fix in ice cold 70% ethanol for 2 hr at 4°C.

5. Wash cells in Staining Buffer (BUF073) or 1x PBS.

6. Stain cells with 5μl of PureBlu DAPI Dye stock solution to 0.5 ml cells at a concentration of 2 x 106 cells/ml in cell staining buffer containing 0.1% Triton X-100.

Note: Optimal concentrations of cells and PureBlu DAPI may vary depending on cell type and should be determined through careful titration prior to final experimental analysis.

7. Stain at room temperature for 30 min in the dark.

8. Optional: Rinse cells with Staining Buffer (BUF073) or 1x PBS.

9. Proceed with analysis by flow cytometry. When bound to double-stranded DNA (dsDNA) PureBlu DAPI Dye can be excited with either a 355 nm or a 405 nm laser, with optimum emission at 461nm.


Staining Procedure - Cell Nuclear Visualization in Microscopy and Cell Imaging

Preparation of the 1x staining solution: Dilute the 100x stock solution 1/100 with PBS for a final concentration of 1 μg/ml.

1. Grow cells of interest under conditions specific for the cell type.

2. Rinse cells with 1x PBS.

3. Optional: Rinse cells with 1x PBS and permeabilize them with 1x PBST (0.1% Triton X-100 in 1x PBS) at room temperature for 5 min.

5. Rinse cells with 1x PBS.

6. Stain with 1x staining solution (diluted with PBS) at room temperature for 15 min.

7. Rinse cells with 1x PBS.

8. Optional: Remove PBS and mount cells in antifade mounting media.

9. Image cells.
