CyTRAK Orange™ Staining Solution

CyTRAK Orange™ Staining Solution

CyTRAK Orange™ Staining Solution is an orange DNA stain which is cell permeable and intercalates double-stranded DNA (dsDNA) of living or fixed cells stoichiometrically.
CyTRAK Orange™ Staining Solution is an orange DNA stain which is cell permeable and intercalates double-stranded DNA (dsDNA) of living or fixed cells stoichiometrically. In addition to the preferentially stained nucleus the cytoplasma is also stained weakly. The fluorescence emission maximum for dsDNA‑bound CyTRAK Orange is 610 nm. With a broad excitation band with a maximum at 510 nm it can be excited efficiently by blue (488 nm) lasers.
CyTRAK Orange is very stable at room temperature and in ambient light with low photobleaching characteristics. The dye can be used in several flow cytometry applications:
  • Enumeration of nucleated cells
  • Nuclear counterstain in imaging and flow cytometry
  • Arrested/senescent cell identification
  • Nucl:cyto segmentation
