9,10-Dihydro-9-oxoanthracene

9,10-Dihydro-9-oxoanthracene is a tricyclic aromatic ketone. It is used for a popular cellulose assay and in the colorometric determination of carbohydrates.

Properties Suppliers
Amaranth

Amaranth is a dark red to purple azo dye used as a food dye and to color cosmetics. The name was taken from amaranth grain, a plant distinguished by its red color and edible protein-rich seeds. Amaranth is an anionic dye. It can be applied to natural and synthetic fibers, leather, paper, and phenol-formaldehyde resins. As a food additive it has E number E123. Amaranth usually comes as a trisodium salt. It has the appearance of reddish-brown, dark red to purple water-soluble powder that decomposes at 120 °C without melting. Amaranths water solution has absorption maximum at about 520 nm.

Properties Suppliers
Bromophenol Blue

Bromophenol blue is used as an acid-base indicator, a color marker and a dye,stain.It can be prepared by slowly adding excess bromine to a hot solution of phenolsulfonphthalein in glacial acetic acid.Bromophenol blue is also used as a color marker to monitor the process of agarose gel electrophoresis and polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis.

Properties Suppliers
Calmagite

Calmagite is a complexometric indicator used in analytical chemistry to identify the presence of metal ions in solution.Calmagite will be wine red when it is bound to a metal ion and may be blue, red, or orange when it is not bound to a metal ion. Calmagite is often used in conjunction with EDTA, a stronger metal binding agent. It is also used in the quantitation of magnesium in the clinical laboratory.

Properties Suppliers
Erythrosine

Erythrosine, also known as Red No. 3, is an organoiodine compound, specifically a derivative of fluorone. It is cherry-pink synthetic, primarily used for food coloring. Erythrosine is the disodium salt of 2,4,5,7-tetraiodofluorescein. Its maximum absorbance is at 530 nm in an aqueous solution, and it is subject to photodegradation.Erythrosine used as a printing inks, biological stain,dental plaque disclosing agent,sensitizer for orthochromatic photographic films.Erythrosine is commonly used in sweets such as some candies and popsicles, and even more widely used in cake-decorating gels. It is also used to color pistachio shells.

Ethidium Bromide

Ethidium bromide is an intercalating agent commonly used as a fluorescent tag (nucleic acid stain) in molecular biology laboratories for techniques such as agarose gel electrophoresis.Its core heterocyclic moiety is generically known as a phenanthridine, an isomer of which is the fluorescent dye acridine.Ethidium bromide is commonly used to detect nucleic acids in molecular biology laboratories. In the case of DNA this is usually double-stranded DNA from PCRs, restriction digests.Ethidium bromide is not regulated as hazardous waste at low concentrations,but is treated as hazardous waste by many organizations.

Properties Suppliers
Methylene Blue

Methylene blue is an heterocyclic aromatic chemical compound.It is used to treat ich. It is used as a pathological stain and as a diagnostic aid in the detection of the premature rupture of fetal membranes and to identify separate amniotic sacs in multiple pregnancies. It is used as a biological and bacteriological stain, oxidation-reduction indicator as well.

Properties Suppliers
Thioflavin T

Thioflavin T is a benzothiazole salt obtained by the methylation of dehydrothiotoluidine with methanol in the presence of hydrochloric acid. The dye is widely used to visualize and quantify the presence of misfolded protein aggregates called amyloid, both in vitro and in vivo.Thioflavin T fluorescence is often used as a diagnostic of amyloid structure, but it is not perfectly specific for amyloid.
