DRAQ5™ Staining Solution

DRAQ5™ Staining Solution

DRAQ5™ Staining Solution is a far-red DNA stain which is cell permeable and intercalates double-stranded DNA (dsDNA) of living or fixed cells stoichiometrically.
DRAQ5 Staining Solution is a far-red DNA stain which is cell permeable and intercalates double-stranded DNA (dsDNA) of living or fixed cells stoichiometrically.
The fluorescence emission maximum for dsDNA-bound DRAQ5 is 697 nm. With a broad excitation band with maxima at 600 and 646 nm it can be excited efficiently by red (635 nm) and yellow (561 nm) lasers, and suboptimally by blue (488 nm) lasers.
DRAQ5 is very stable at room temperature and in ambient light with a low photobleaching characteristic. Moreover, it is compatible with buffers in physiological pH range.
The dye can be used in several flow cytometry applications:
  • Enumeration of nucleated cells
  • Nuclear counterstain in imaging and flow cytometry
  • Cell cycle analysis
  • DNA content analysis
