Review date: 02 Dec 2014

Application Area: We use DRAQ5 on the Amnis Imagestream to visualize nuclear translocation of transcription
DRAQ5

"We have used DRAQ5 for Amnis ImageStream analysis for several years now and it has a nice consistently bright staining. We found this dye to be more reliable and less problematic (bleeding into subsequent samples, contaminating tubes, compensation issues) than various other dyes such as Dapi and hoechst dyes. We add 2-3ul of a 1:1000 dilution to our cells (1-2x10^6)/100ul just before acquisition. Officially our vial has expired (for at least a year), but we have seen no reduction in signal. We have used DRAQ5 for traditional flow-cytometry as well, to either eliminate or select cell-doublets or 2-cell conjugates. For flow we use a 10-fold higher concentration than for imaging, which makes it less cost-effective than some other live dyes in this setting."

Application Area: IHC of fixed mouse spinal cord tissue sections
DRAQ5

"This dye nicely stains the nuclei even in 60 micron thick spinal cord tissue sections in just 10 minutes. It helped us quickly visualize the aggregation of leukocyte infiltrates across the spinal cord vessels in a mouse model of Multiple Sclerosis."

Review date: 05 Aug 2014

Application Area: cell biology, immunology, receptor-signaling research
DRAQ5

"This product is very useful for us in intracellular staining of receptors for localization. It is an easy to use nuclear counter stain because of its advantageous spectral properties (it does not cover at least two or three out of the available visible range optical channels in confocal microscopy, like propidium iodide). Sometimes we can also utilize its unique property that it does not need cell permeabilization that other nucleic acid stains require."
