ColorWheel® Flow Cytometry Antibodies and Dyes


The ColorWheel® flow cytometry portfolio utilizes a proprietary technology optimized for flow cytometry that allows users to independently select antibodies and dyes for assembly in any desired combination. With less than 5 minutes of hands-on time, these antibodies and dyes serve as an analog to primary conjugated antibodies. This mix-and-match ability is supplemented with a lyophilized presentation product for enhanced stability and ambient shipping, as well as preservative-free presentation for sustainability and wider sample type compatibility.

BENEFITS OF THE ColorWheel® PORTFOLIO

The ColorWheel® portfolio of antibodies and dyes provides users with the freedom to design the experiments they want to conduct with the flexibility to adapt today’s experiments to tomorrow’s questions — all in a simple procedure with no compromise in performance. Learn how incorporate them into your flow cytometry experiment with our ColorWheel® Flow Cytometry Protocol and how to assemble them with our simple
3-Step ColorWheel® Flow Cytometry Reagent Preparation Protocol.

ColorWheel® antibodies and dyes help you obtain reliable, reproducible results by reducing the “unknowns” in your experiment.

Comparison to Conventional Flow Cytometry Methods

ColorWheel® antibodies and dyes help solve the flow cytometry multiplexing puzzle by fitting together the different pieces or challenges of multiplexing in flow cytometry including instrument configuration, antigen expression/dye brightness, and antibody-dye combination availability.

Multiplexing Made Simple

Multiplexing in flow cytometry can be a puzzle that researchers have to piece together. Flow cytometry multiplexing involves balancing various pieces of the puzzle including the configuration of the instrument, balancing antigen expression with dye brightness, and antibody-dye combination availability. If it is not possible to fit all of these factors into one experiment, researchers need to compromise by performing multiple assays. Running multiple assays takes more time and introduces different experimental conditions causing variability that may lead to unreliable data. The flexibility of ColorWheel® technology helps you fit the multiplexing puzzle pieces together.

Supporting Sustainability

ColorWheel® antibodies and dyes are lyophilized and provide 5+ years of shelf life. These products can be stored longer than traditional pre-labeled antibodies and dyes, making them ideal for reagent storage at core facilities. While targets can change per researcher, the configuration of the flow cytometers within the facility, and thus the compatible dyes, remain constant. With the ColorWheel® portfolio, this consistency in dye compatibility allows for stocking of the individual dye components that work with the instrument, preventing disruption in reagent supply and taking advantage of bulk discounts. With a steady supply of dye reagent always in stock, simply choose the ColorWheel® antibody of interest, mix and match as needed, and run your assay.
