      Description
      OverviewThis kit uses a cell-permeable green fluorescent Cyto-dye (Ex. max.: 488 nm; Em. max.: 518 nm) to stain live cells, and propidium iodide (Ex. max.: 488 nm; Em. max.: 615 nm) to stain dead cells. Stained live and dead cells can be visualized by fluorescence microscopy using a band-pass filter which detects FITC and rhodamine. Viable cells will stain only with the Cyto-dye, fluorescing green, whereas the dead cells will stain with both Cyto-dye (green) and propidium iodide (red), resulting in a yellow fluorescence. Note: 1 T = 1 test.
      Optimal staining conditions may vary among different cell types and should be determined empirically by the investigator.

      Intended useThe Calbiochem® Live/Dead Double Staining Kit can be used to distinguish between live and dead cells, which is essential for the study of growth control and cell death.
      Principles of the assayThe Calbiochem® Live/Dead Double Staining Kit provides ready-to-use staining reagents to conveniently discriminate between live and dead cells. The kit utilizes Cyto-dye, a cell-permeable green flourescent dye (Ex/Em = 488/518 nm), to stain live cells. Dead cells can be easily stained by propidium iodide (PI), a non-permeable red flourescent dye (Ex/Em= 488/615) that can only enter the cell when there is membrane damage that results in permeabilization. Stained live and dead cells can be visualized by flourescence microscopy using a band-pass filter that detects FITC and rhodamine. Cyto-Dye has also been used to discriminate between apoptotic and non-apoptotic cells.
      Materials provided• Solution A (Kit Component No. JA1897): 1 vial, 50 µl, 1 mM Cyto-Dye
      • Solution B (Kit Component No. JA1898): 1 vial, 50 µl, 1 mg/ml Propidium Iodide (PI)
      • Staining Buffer (Kit Component No. JA1899): 1 vial, 50 ml
      Materials Required but not provided Fluorescent microscope with a band-pass filter that detects FITC and rhodamine
      Microscope slides and cover slips
      Reagent preparation• Preparation of Staining Solution: Prior to use, prepare enough Staining Solution for the number of cell samples being tested. For example, to prepare 1 ml Staining Solution, mix 1 µl Solution A and 1 µl Solution B in 1 ml Staining Buffer. Use a ratio of 100 µl Staining Solution per 1 x 105 cells.
      Detailed protocol1. Collect cells by centrifugation at 500 x g for 5 min and discard the supernatant. For analyzing adherent cells, grow the cells directly on a coverslip.
      2. Resuspend the cell pellet with Staining Solution. Use 100 µl for every 1 x 105 cells.
      3. Incubate for 15 min at 37°C. For analyzing adherent cells, stain the cells directly on the coverslip.
      4. Transfer an aliquot of the cell suspension to a glass slide and cover the cells with a glass coverslip. For analyzing adherent cells, invert the coverslip on a glass slide to visualize the cells.
      5. Analyze the cells immediately under a fluorescence microscope using a band-pass filter that detects flourescein and rhodamine. Live cells stain only the cell-permeable Cyto-Dye, flourescing green. Dead cells stain with both the cell-permeable Cyto-Dye and the non-permeable propidium iodide, fluorescing red; the overlay of green and red appears yellow.

      Note: The optimal staining conditions may vary among different cell types, so it is recommended that the optimal concentration of Solution A and B be determined for individual cell types.
