Product Description
Details
-Bacstain- Bacterial Viability Detection Kits are a series of products for fluorescent double-staining of bacteria. By combining different types of fluorescent stain, staining images can be acquired for each index (membrane impairment, respiratory activity, and esterase activity). Bacterial viability is generally assessed by colony formation in the nutrient-agar medium. However, this requires a long culturing time, and it is hard to recognise the growth of viable but nonculturable (VNC) bacteria. However, fluorescent staining does not require bacterial culture and enables viability assessment by rapid and simple protocols.

-Bacstain- Bacterial Viability Detection Kit – CTC/DAPI uses respiratory activity of bacteria as an index. CTC produces formazan dye upon reduction by NAD(P)H formed by bacterial respiratory activity, and hence selectively stains active bacteria. DAPI is a minor groove binder specific to the AT sequence of DNA and permeates into bacteria to stain nucleic acids regardless of membrane damage. Thus, this kit can be used to measure the ratio of bacteria with respiratory activity to total bacteria on the analysis of the fluorescent images from each stain.
