eFluor Nanocrystals are high quantum yield nanocrystals that contain a heavy metal core particle surrounded by a patented surface coating enabling attachment to antibodies and other biomolecules. Nanocrystals are intrinsically bright, are exceptionally photostable, and have a narrow emission spectra that reduces background staining and artifacts — all factors that make them useful in applications ranging from flow cytometry to imaging.
eFluor Nanocrystals are also easy to use in multicolor applications. They are compatible with other nanocrystals and traditional dyes and, since they are named after their emission wavelength, it is easy to select the right fluorophore for your staining panels.
Benefits of eFluor Nanocrystals Over Conventional Dyes
- Narrow emission spectra - with narrow, sharp emission peaks, less overlap between dyes occurs, reducing the amount of complex compensation calculation to obtain final data.
- Bright staining intensity - high signal to noise ration means you are seeing your sample, not artifacts.
- Superior photostability - key in IHC and Imaging applications. Track your stained samples over hours or days with the same staining intensity.
- Multicolor usage - fully compatible with all nanocrystal and conventional dyes, expanding your color options in multicolor staining panels.
