Product Description

Oxazole Red, also known as YO-PRO®-3, is a far-red fluorescent, cell-impermeant nucleic acid stain that can be used to stain dead or fixed cells. The dye is essentially non-fluorescent in the absence of nucleic acids but exhibits strong excitation/emission maxima 613/629 nm when bound to nucleic acids. In addition, the dye is non-cytotoxic and may be used for long-term monitoring of viability in cell cultures.

  • Monomeric nucleic acid stain
  • Cell-impermeant
  • λExEm (with DNA) = 613/629 nm
  • Supplied at 1 mM in DMSO
  • C26H31I2N3O
  • MW: 655
