Thioflavin T (ab120751)
- Product nameThioflavin T
- DescriptionFluorescent cell permeable amyloid binding benzothiazol salt
- Biological descriptionFluorescent cell permeable amyloid binding benzothiazol salt. Dye used to visualise stacked β sheets in vitro and in vivo. Binding induces a shift in excitation maximum (385 nm to 450 nm) and emissions maximum (445 nm to 482 nm). Highly soluble in water. Limited ability to cross the blood brain barrier.
- Purity> 97%

- Molecular Weight318.86
- Chemical structure
- Molecular formulaC17H19ClN2S
- CAS Number2390-54-7
- Storage instructionsStore at room temperature.
- Solubility overviewSoluble in water to 100 mM (with warming) and in DMSO to 100 mM
Providing storage is as stated on the product vial and the vial is kept tightly sealed, the product can be stored for up to 6 months.
Wherever possible, you should prepare and use solutions on the same day. However, if you need to make up stock solutions in advance, we recommend that you store the solution as aliquots in tightly sealed vials at -20°C. Generally, these will be useable for up to one month. Before use, and prior to opening the vial we recommend that you allow your product to equilibrate to room temperature for at least 1 hour.
