DRAQ7™ is directly interchangeable with DRAQ5™ to permit convenient two tube multi-colour analysis for sample quality and DNA content analysis. For HCS and microscopy, DRAQ7™ efficiently counterstains fixed cell and tissue preparations. It offers differential nucl:cyto staining for dual compartment segmentation for translocation tracking and cell morphometrics for in vitro toxicology.
With negligible toxicity, DRAQ7™ can be used in RNAi knock-down and long-term, dynamic viability assays to report cytotoxicity and apoptosis. Supplied as a convenient aqueous, ready-to-use solution, the introductory 1 ml pack is sufficient for 200 flow cytometry tests, 200-300 slides and 6000 microtiterplate wells.
