Application Note: Application of DRAQ™ Dyes in Single Cell Transcriptomics and Genomics
20 April 2018

DRAQ5™ and DRAQ7™ dyes provide accurate fluorescent labelling and assist in distinguishing cell status for single cell transcriptomics and genomic applications. One concern regarding the use of these DNA binding dyes is any unwanted effects on the first strand cDNA synthesis. However, studies in this white paper have demonstrated that DRAQ5™ and DRAQ7™ do not interfere with the synthesis process, indicating an accurate experimental outcome.
