Solution 5 – VB-48™•PI•AO is a staining reagent containing a thiol-reactive fluorescent probe, VitaBright-48™, propidium iodide (PI) and acridine orange (AO). Solution 5 – VB-48™•PI•AO enables the user to detect changes in cell vitality.
Solution 5 – VB-48™•PI•AO employs three cell staining dyes: AO stains all nucleated cells, PI stains nonviable cells only, and VB-48™ stains cells in an intensity-dependent manner reflecting their redox status. VitaBright-48™ can be used as a marker for detection of midstage to late apoptosis in mammalian cells as high levels of reduced thiols within any given cell will result in a high fluorescence intensity of VB-48™. Please refer to the specific Application Notes for detailed instructions.
