Description

This product contains a mixture of 3.0 - 3.4 µm Rainbow Calibration Particles that are dyed to six different fluorescent intensities.  Rainbow Calibration Particles (approx. 1 x 10^7 particles/mL) are designed for routine calibration of flow cytometers and contain a mixture of fluorophores that are excited at any wavelength from 365 - 650 nm.  Rainbow Calibration Particles have emission spectra compatible with many common fluorophores used for immunofluorescent staining with flow cytometric analysis.  Before use, mix or resuspend the particles by vortexing.  Dilution of 3 - 5 drops of particles to 1 mL of sheath fluid will provide an adequate number of particles for flow cytometric analysis.



Preparation And Storage

Store undiluted at 4°C and protected from prolonged exposure to light. Do not freeze.
