Calcofluor White Stain, 5 mM in Water
A fluorescent blue dye that binds to cellulose and chitin, which can be found in the cell walls of fungi, algae, and plants. In budding yeast Calcofluor White strongly stains bud scars.
Thiazole Orange, 10 mM in DMSO
Thiazole orange (TO) is commonly used in reticulocyte analysis to stain residual RNA of blood cells, to stain DNA in agarose gels and capillary electrophoresis. Thiazole Orange stains the yeast nucleus, and is also able to stain bacteria and mammalian cells.
