Can I run fluorochrome X with fluorochrome Y?

     To determine the spectral overlaps of varied fluorochromes please visit the Spectrum Viewer pages in the Helpful Links page.  There you will be able to pick fluorochromes from a list and compare their excitation and emission wavelengths to get an idea if they are compatable.  Fluorochromes whose emission peaks completely overlap can't be used together on our instruments, GFP and FITC for example. If you are still stumped feel free to contact us regarding your choices.
