Flow Cytometry Image 1 - Ghost Dye™ Red 710 Viability Dye

Flow cytometric analysis of live and fixed/permeabilized peripheral blood mononuclear cells, combined and stained with Ghost Dye™ Red 710 Viability Dye. Viable gate is indicated.

Product Usage Information

1. Prepare the following reagents with reverse osmosis deionized (RODI) or equivalent grade water:

a. 1X PBS (azide- and protein/serum-free)

b. Incubation Buffer: Dissolve 0.5 g Bovine Serum Albumin (BSA) (#9998) in 100 ml 1X PBS. Store at 4°C.

2. Remove Ghost Dye™ from -20°C and bring to room temperature.

3. Collect cells by centrifugation and aspirate supernatant.

4. Wash cells by centrifugation in excess 1X PBS. Repeat if necessary.

5. Resuspend cells to a concentration of 1-10 x 106/mL in 1X PBS.

6. Centrifuge the Ghost Dye™ before opening then add 1 uL for each 1 mL of cell suspension and vortex immediately.

7. Incubate for 30 minutes at 4°C protected from light.

8. Wash by centrifugation in excess incubation buffer. Discard supernatant. Repeat.

9. Cells can then be stained, fixed and/or permeabilized based upon experimental design.

Ghost Dye™ Red 710 Viability Dye excited by the red (633-647 nm) laser line and has a peak emission of 710 nm

that can be detected using the recommended 710/50 band pass filter commonly used for detection of Alexa Fluor® 700.


Store at -20°C desiccated and protected from light. This product is stable for 12 months. Aliquot to avoid excessive freeze-thaw cycles.

Product Description

Ghost Dye™ Red 710 Viability Dye is used to discriminate viable from non-viable mammalian cells in flow cytometry applications. Ghost Dye™ Red 710 Viability Dye irreversibly binds free amines available on the cell surface as well as intracellular free amines exposed in cells with compromised cell membranes. Non-viable cells with loss of membrane integrity will react with significantly more Ghost Dye™ Red 710 Viability Dye than healthy cells in the same sample. Cells that exhibit increased fluorescence intensity can be excluded from analysis.
