Product Description

BackDrop® Green Background Suppressor is a novel reagent designed to effectively suppress green background fluorescence and improve live cell image quality, eliminating the need for medium removal and potential cell loss. BackDrop® Green is supplied as a ready-to-use liquid in a convenient dropper bottle and is applied directly to live cell imaging samples.


Product Usage Information

To eliminate green background fluorescence and improve live cell image quality, apply 2 drops of BackDrop® Green Background Suppressor per 1 mL of media just prior to imaging. Cells should be imaged within 1 hour of application, however longer treatment has not been shown to harm cells.


Storage: Store at room temperature. This product is stable for 12 months.
