How Qdot® Nanocrystals Benefit Your Flow Cytometry
Greater Flexibility and Precision for Flow Cytometry
With new flow cytometry instrumentation allowing ever-expanding detection capabilities, Qdot® Nanocrystals add an exciting new array of fluorescent labels for use in flow cytometry. Qdot® Nanocrystals provide fluorescent labels that can be excited with UV or violet light as well as longer-wavelength light sources, and exhibit long effective Stokes shifts and relatively narrow emission peaks. The result: greater flexibility and precision in designing multicolor flow cytometry panels.
