ChromaLive is surprisingly easy-to-use. It gives clear images with a very good signal-to-noise ratio. I was able to quickly differentiate apoptotic cells from viable ones in a high-content image analysis. Plus, customer support was outstanding!

 There’s no need for a washing step, which makes high-throughput screening possible with ChromaLive. [There] are six kinds of patient CLL cells that we identified using those dyes, and we have found a drug combination, now in clinical trials, that effectively kills cells for one patient cohort

My cells are unaffected. I can easily tell between live and dead cell states, and even tell apart the different immune cells in my model
