BD Horizon™ Red 718 (R718), developed exclusively for BD Biosciences, is a small-molecule dye excited by the red (640 or 628 nm) laser with an emission maximum of 718 nm.
R718 can be detected in the same filter as Alexa Fluor® 700 and canbe used as an alternative to Alexa Fluor® 700 or APC-R700:

*Subject to raw-material availability
Great selection of antibodies for panel design. In that case, it was delivered within 24 hours. Dr Laura Pallett, Maini Group
Division of Infection and Immunity, University College London,UK
Very fast delivery, faster than usual. With fluorochromes included in BD OptiBuild, we can increase the markers used in the same panel. Dr Guillaume Harle, Dept of Pathology and Immunology,
Univ. of Geneva, Switzerland
Additional colours possible due to the UV laser. Much faster delivery-within 2 days Dr Anne Wilson, Dept of Fundamental Oncology,
Univ. of Lausanne, Switzerland
BD Horizon Brilliant™ Blue dyes
Optimally resolve dim populations with brighter options for the blue laser. BD Horizon Brilliant™ Blue 515 (BB515) is brighter than FITC, and BD Horizon Brilliant™ Blue 700 (BB700) is a brighter alternative to PerCP-Cy™5.5.
BD Horizon Brilliant™ Violet dyes
We've expanded the number of bright dyes available for the violet laser. BD’s Brilliant™ Violet reagents are brilliantly bright, making them ideally suited for a variety of applications.
BD Horizon Brilliant™ Ultraviolet dyes
These unique reagents expand the use of the UV laser; they allow markers to be spread over more lasers, reducing the overall compensation requirements of the panel.
BD Brilliant™ Ultraviolet 615 (BUV615) – Designed to provide flexibility in panel design
Excellent resolution of dim populations
Expanding multi-color options for 355 nm UV laser
Overall low impact on the resolution of most other fluorochromes
Available through the BD OptiBuild™ range
BD Horizon Brilliant™ Stain Buffer
When conjugates are used with this innovative proprietary staining buffer, the combined formulation resolves possible dye-to-dye interactions for consistently predictable results, thus helping you resolve rare and dim cell populations more easily and precisely.
BD OptiBuild™ custom reagents offer more fluorochrome options with the antibodies you need.
Whether you want to minimize compensation or add new markers to complex experiments, BD OptiBuild™ reagents provide flexibility to optimize your panel and enhance data resolution.
Now your BD OptiBuild™ reagents will be delivered within three days of your order!

BD Horizon™ Dri Chroma – The brilliance of a complete panel in a tube
A proprietary technology to dry down up to 16 reagents, including up to 5 BD Horizon™ Brilliant dyes, lowers human errors by reducing the need for manual pipetting. The result is greater workflow efficiency, optimisation, stability and flexibility in panel design. The dried down reagents show performance comparable to liquid reagents, as revealed by an experiment featuring two panels to identify regulatory Tcells (Tregs) .
