Top) Spectral pattern was generated using a 4-laser spectral cytometer. Spatially offset lasers (355 nm, 405 nm, 488 nm, and 640 nm) were used to create four distinct emission profiles, then, when combined, yielded the overall spectral signature. Bottom) Flow cytometry analysis of whole blood cells stained with PE anti-human CD4 *SK3* conjugate. The fluorescence signal was monitored using an Aurora flow cytometer in the PE specific B6-A channel.

R-Phycoerythrin (PE) is isolated from red algae. Its primary absorption peak is at 565 nm with secondary peaks at 496 and 545 nm. All the commercial PE materials are sold in concentrated ammonium sulfate buffers. The commercial PE materials from other vendors require the tedious dialysis or other purifications performed before it can be used for labeling purposes. AAT Bioquest offers this ReadiUse™ PE that can be readily used for any labelings without any purifications required. Our highly purified ReadiUse™ PE facilitates the rapid PE conjugations to antibodies and other proteins such as streptavidin and other secondary reagents.
