Muse® Algae Count & Viability Assay utilizes a proprietary mix DNA intercalating dyes in a single reagent. One of the dyes is membrane permeant and will stain all cells with a nucleus. The second dye only stains cells whose membranes have been compromised and are dying or dead. This combination allows for the discrimination of nucleated cells with either low or high levels of chlorophyll from those without a nucleus or debris, and live cells from dead or dying resulting in both accurate cell concentration and viability results. Figures show high or low viability for Chlamydomonas Reinhardtii(A&B) or Chlorella Vulgaris (C&D) when treated with H202 and mixed at a known concentration with live cells. Clear separation is seen of live and dead cells for both strains shown.

New Guava® and Muse® kits accurately assess and monitor your algae cultures. All of these new kits leverage the benefits the Guava® and Muse® lines of compact, easy-to-use capillary flow cytometers.
  • Fast, easy setup and operation
  • Assess thousands of cells in a few minutes
  • Faster and more accurate than manual methods

Muse® Algae Count and Viability Kit

Benefits:
  • Optimize algae cultures with fast, accurate count and viability
  • Increase capabilities for scale up and culture consistency
Features:
  • Two-color staining for greater accuracy (nucleated cell dye and dead cell dye)
  • Simple 5-minute “mix and read” sample prep
  • Fast: less than 10 minutes from sample to answer

Algae Lipid Detection Kits

Benefits:
  • Relative Lipid Content has been shown to modulate cellular growth.
  • Overproduction of lipids may be detrimental to optimal cellular growth.
Features:
  • One-color assays optimized for the laser wavelengths of the Guava® (488mnm) and Muse® (532 nm) flow cytometers
  • Simple 5-minute “mix and read” sample prep
  • Fast: less than 10 minutes from sample to answer
