Product nameCyTRAK Orange™ 50µl (5 mM)
Tested applicationsSuitable for: FM, Flow Cyt, ICC/IFmore details
CyTRAK Orange™ is a novel orange fluorescent dye [related to DRAQ5™ (ab108410)] that stains both nucleus and cytoplasm. It is water soluble and membrane permeant which can be used in live and fixed cells in combination with other common fluorophores, such as GFP-fusions, green-labelled antibodies (FITC or DyLight® 488) and far-red dyes. CyTRAK Orange™ preferentially stains the nucleus, but also defines the cytoplasmic area in both live and fixed preparations. CyTRAK Orange™ does the work of two fluorophores! Key features of CyTRAK Orange™ include:
- Rapid staining of dsDNA/nuclei of LIVE or fixed cells
- Differential intensity of DNA binding and Cytoplasmic labelling - One fluorophore doing the work of two
- Low photobleaching effect
- Ideal for use with GFP, FITC & DyLight® 488 and 649 labels
- No lyse / no wash protocols
- It is membrane-permeant
- 457, 488 & 549 (Exmax 515nm)
- similar profile to Propidium Iodide
- co-excited with FITC/Cy2/eGFP and PE-Cy7
- NOT excited by UV or red lasers (e.g. 633 & 647 nm)
Emission (instrument dependent):
- Emmax 615 nm
- No significant spectral overlap with co-excited green fluors (eGFP, FITC, Cy2)
- Visualize GFP-tagged temporospatial changes in live cells in a single acquisition from a 488 nm excitation
Storage instructionsStore at +4°C. Do Not Freeze. Store In the Dark.
Concentration information loading...
Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab109203 in the following tested applications.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
|FM||Use at an assay dependent concentration.|
|Flow Cyt||1/1000 - 1/300. For Nucleated Cell Gate = 5µM; For Discrimination of Arrested/ Senescent Cells = 15µM|
|ICC/IF||1/1000. For microscopy counterstain = 5µM
It is highly recommended that the concentration and labelling conditions are carefully determined by each investigator for optimal performance in the assay of interest. For more specific information about the applications, please refer to the Protocol Booklet.
