  REGARDING           Quantifying LIVE CELLS

I am planning to run a survival bioassay were then I can quantitate LIVE cells only using the flowcytometer.  
I called Molecular Probes and they suggested "SYTOX" which stains dead cells  only (but will not cross the membrane of live cells).  Have anyone used this stain before?  Advantages or Disadvantages?
or is there a live cell staining? Suggestions......
