General description

This kit provides enough dye for up to 25 samples of 20 million cells each and enough diluent for up to 5 samples of 20 million cells each, when using a 2 mL final staining volume containing a final concentration of 2 x 10-6 M of PKH26 dye. Users must determine the optimal dye and cell concentrations from their cell type(s) and experimental purposes.


PKH26 red fluorescent cell linker mini kit has been used for:
  • labelling microglial, natural killer cells and preadipocytes
  • tracking of viable transplanted adipose-derived stem cells
  • in vitro proliferation studies of bone marrow stem cells
  • general cell membrane labeling, including for in vitro cell labeling and long term in vivo cell tracking.

PKH Linker Kits for Fluorescent Cell Labeling

PKH dyes are easy to use and achieve stable, uniform, and reproducible fluorescent labeling of live cells. PKH dyes are non-toxic membrane stains which produce high signal to noise ratio.
