CYTO-13 is a fluorogenic, DNA-selective and cell-permeant dye for analyzing DNA content in living cells. CYTO-13 has its green fluorescence significantly enhanced upon binding to DNA. It can be used in fluorescence imaging, microplate and flow cytometry applications. This DNA-binding dye might be used for multicolor analysis of live cells with proper filter sets. Based on our in-house evaluations, it has equivalent DNA staining properties almost identical to SYTO-13™ DNA stain (SYTO-13™ is the trade mark of ThermoFisher).
