Product Description

Eosin-5-maleimide is a good photosensitizer and can be used to selectively label thiols. It has a quantum yield of 0.57 for singlet oxygen generation, which makes it useful for photoconversion of electron-rich materials such as diaminobenzidine (DAB) or fluorescent dyes into highly electron-dense materials for high resolution electron microscopy studies (1,2). Additionally, eosin is a good fluorescence acceptor for fluorescein (FAM), dansyl and coumarin dyes in fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET).
