Tris-SDS Buffer (pH 6.8) is used to prepare buffer for stacking gel during SDS-PAGE (SDSPolyacrylamide gel electrophoresis). It is a discontinuous gel with a huge pores size to concentrate proteins prior to entering the separating zone. The buffer is sold in a 5X stock.
Pyronin Y(G) (PY) is a dye used for DNA staining. PY has orange spectral emission that is easily distinguishable from FITC and 7-AAD.
This dye has been used as a counterstain in saturated aqueous potassium alum and in a counterstain solution of 0.1% (w/v) with 5% aluminum sulfate for a Prussian Blue Stain for ferric iron. It has been used as a reagent for calcium in tissue where it forms a scarlet lake.
This “Mayer’s hemalum solution - for microscopy” is used for human-medical cell diagnosis and serves the histological and clinico-cytological investigation of sample material of human origin.
Immunofluorescence Quenching Solution is used in immunofluorescence and immunocytochemistry applications.
Cresol red is used as a tracking dye for DNA/RNA in agarose gel electrophoresis and protein in polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis.
It was originally used as an antimalarial compound. It kills the erythrocytic forms of malaria parasites at all stages of development but does not affect the sporozoites.
