C. elegans Fluorescent Staining Kits

Vital fluorescent dyes can provide valuable information about internal structures and biological processes such as metabolism and apoptosis. NemaMetrix’s RediStain™ Fluorescent Staining Kits improve visualization of C. elegans’ structure and function in phenotyping studies.

Each RediStain™ Fluorescent Kit is packaged in convenient sizes and concentrations. Now you can easily stain live worms and save time on more important downstream experiments.

Used with the ScreenChip™ System, these florescent staining kits enable the analysis of nematode phenotypes and their directly-related underlying genotypes that would not be possible with non-fluorescent techniques.
