Calcein, AM Solution Summary

Description
Calcein AM is a viability dye that can be used in permeabilized cells. Upon uptake by a live cell, Calcein AM is cleaved by intracellular esterases resulting in fluorescence. Dead cells will not have sufficient esterase activity and will not fluoresce. In this way, dead cells may be identified by their low Calcein signal. Calcein is efficiently excited by the 488nm blue laser and emits at 516 nm (FL1 on a standard 4 color flow cytometer).
