More Information

VectaCell Acridine Orange is a fluorescent dye that can be used to stain acidic organelles, such as lysosomes, autosomes or yeast vacuoles. At low pH (inside the organelles), it will emit an orange fluorescence (peak at 590 nm). For optimal endosome visualization use a blue light excitation (475 nm).

VectaCell Acridine Orange also binds nucleic acids. When bound to double-stranded DNA, it emits a green fluorescence (525 nm); when bound to RNA it fluoresces red (650 nm). For optimal DNA visualization use a 502 nm excitation. For optimal RNA visualization excite at 460 nm.
