Propidium iodide may be used in flow cytometry to evaluate cell viability when used with other dyes that stain viable cells or cells that are early in the apoptosis process.

Solubility
Soluble in water at 1mg/ml

Notes
Light Sensitive & Hygroscopic. Store in cool, dry conditions in well sealed containers. Keep container tightly closed.
