Phenotypic Screening and In Vitro Toxicology: Applications of Far‐Red Fluorescing DNA-Specific Anthraquinones in Cell‐Based Assays
6 August 2015

This application note demonstrates a number of applications of Fluorescein-/GFP-compatible dyes, in particular DRAQ5 and CyTRAK Orange. The particular spectral and chemical features of DRAQ5 and CyTRAK Orange mean they are compatible with aqueous media and fixatives. Conveniently, they are supplied in aqueous solution and can be applied as the final step in a sample preparation. They have become standard reagents for immunofluorescence microscopy, flow cytometry and high content imaging.
