Flow cytometry analysis is a technique commonly used to examine physical and chemical characteristics of cells and particles. Antibodies are used in flow cytometry to help characterize markers on the cell surface since they allow for the detection of specific antigens. These antibodies can be directly conjugated to a fluorophore (direct detection) or paired with a fluorescently labeled secondary antibody (indirect detection). By adding specific fluorophores to specific antibodies, cells can be sorted and analyzed simultaneously.
For successful flow cytometry assays and reproducible results, antibodies validated for use in flow cytometry and proper controls are essential. We offer high-quality flow cytometry validated primary antibodies, secondary antibodies, and isotype control antibodies to support all your flow cytometry needs.
Use our Antibody Explorer search tool to view and compare antibodies by clonality, application, species reactivity, conjugate, host species, and form.
Setting up a successful flow cytometry experiment involves the consideration of many factors such as instrument and dye suitability, primary conjugated antibody availability, secondary antibody cross-reactivity, and more. The ColorWheel® flow cytometry portfolio of antibodies, dyes, and isotype controls was designed to minimize the complexity of balancing these factors through an oligo-based proprietary technology that lets the user independently pick their antibody and dye without a conjugation kit, bringing simplicity to your flow cytometry workflow without compromising on quality.
