Safranin is a basic biological dye commonly used as a counter-stain in some of the staining protocols like gram staining.
Safranin is a cationic dye used in histology and cytology to distinguish and identify different tissues and cells. It is popular in medical research for staining acidic proteoglycan that is found in cartilage tissues, enabling researchers to analyze cell chondrogenesis. The safranin is employed as a counter-stain in endospore staining and Gram’s staining. It is mostly utilized for the identification of cartilage, mucin, and mast cell granules.
ConductScience offers Safranin in two presentations.
The amount of dissolved oxygen in a water sample is measured using fluorescence technology in this portable, easy-to-use probe. Measuring at a range of 0-20.00mg/L or 0-200% saturation level, this probe is manufactured in strict accordance with the international standard of the ISO 9001: 2015 quality management system.
Green LED light irradiates a red fluorophore within the probe. The quenching properties of oxygen in the water sample reduce the lifetime of the red fluorophore, producing an inversely proportional relationship between dissolved oxygen content and red fluorescence, this can be measured to mg/L or percentage saturation level.
