DRAQ7

A far-red viability dye staining nuclei in dead / apoptotic cells.

DRAQ7 fluoresces in the far-red – with the same spectral properties that have made DRAQ5™ a reagent of choice in HCS. DRAQ7™ only labels membrane-compromised dead, dying and apoptotic cells and gives clear discrimination between these and healthy cells in high content cytotoxicity and viability assays and in flow cytometry. The far-red emission, longer wavelength than TOTO-3, permits better combination with other fluorescent probes. It is spectrally compatible with the commonly used orange/red mitochondrial health probes, and UV-excited vital dyes. DRAQ7 can be used in RNAi knock-down and long-term, dynamic viability assays to report in vitro cytotoxicity and apoptosis. Also, DRAQ7 efficiently counterstains fixed cell and tissue preparations. It offers the same differential nucl:cyto stai...Read more

"The greatest characteristic of DRAQ7 is Ease of Use. Short incubation time (~10 min) and excitation by near-infrared wavelength allow us to sort and eliminate dead cells in flow cytometric analysis easier. This dye also has good performance considering its low price."

  • DRAQ7

"This product is user-friendly and does not require much effort to use. It gives good results and is clear. It can be used for a time acceptable. In addition, the company's service was superior in terms of response and availability. I am very pleased and I know I will contact the company again when I need to. "

  • Application Area:High Content Screening

  • DRAQ7

"This has enabled us to do experiments that were not otherwise possible before. Not only is it a much cleaner signal than other viability dyes, but the fact that it is non-toxic has enabled us to do time courses with the same samples. We have performed 3D spheroid experiments over a 4week period, reading plates every 72hours with zero toxicity! It therefore saves us large amounts of money that would have been spent on ending experiments at each time point using toxic dyes. Highly recommended! "

  • Application Area:Live cell screening

  • DRAQ7

"Draq7 is a great dye for labelling cells and is very easy to use. Using this dye we have been able to do live cell screening of cells, as it is non-toxic to cells. However, overall the cost is a bit expensive for screening."

Description

DRAQ7 fluoresces in the far-red – with the same spectral properties that have made DRAQ5™ a reagent of choice in HCS.

DRAQ7™ only labels membrane-compromised dead, dying and apoptotic cells and gives clear discrimination between these and healthy cells in high content cytotoxicity and viability assays and in flow cytometry.

The far-red emission, longer wavelength than TOTO-3, permits better combination with other fluorescent probes. It is spectrally compatible with the commonly used orange/red mitochondrial health probes, and UV-excited vital dyes.

DRAQ7 can be used in RNAi knock-down and long-term, dynamic viability assays to report in vitro cytotoxicity and apoptosis.

Also, DRAQ7 efficiently counterstains fixed cell and tissue preparations. It offers the same differential nucl:cyto staining for dual compartment segmentation in translocation tracking and cell morphometrics for in vitro toxicology, that has made DRAQ5™ a favourite of HCS assay developers.
 
DRAQ7 is supplied as a convenient aqueous, ready-to-use solution. The 1 ml pack size (GBP 140.00 / ca. USD 220.00) is sufficient for at least 200 flow cytometry tests, 300-600 slides and up to 10,000 1536-MTP wells.
