TIPS & TRICKS

Use Isotype Controls

In addition to binding to their target antigens, fluorescent antibodies also bind to cells in nonspecific ways. Because nonspecific binding increases background signal, it’s important to account for it by using the proper controls.

APPLICATION HIGHLIGHT

A Brighter Alternative to FITC

 

Makes working with FITC seem rather dull

 

As one of the most common fluorochromes for the blue laser, FITC is almost a default option. Now BD offers an alternative to FITC, developed exclusively by BD Biosciences using technology acquired from Sirigen Ltd.

BD Horizon Brilliant™ Blue 515 (BB515) is significantly brighter than FITC—up to seven times brighter, depending on the conjugate. Like FITC, it emits into the FL1 channel of the BD Accuri C6 using the standard 533/30 filter, but has less spillover into the FL2 channel.

BB515 expands choice and flexibility for multicolor panel design and is ideal for use with low-density markers.

BB515 conjugates are currently available for a variety of human and mouse specificities. Visit bdbiosciences.com/eu/go/newblue for an up-to-date list.
