Product Description

Alcian Blue 8Gx

Application Notes

Alcian Blue 8GX is a cationic dye used to quantitatively determine glycosaminoglycans by forming insoluble complexes in solution. Alcian Blue 8GX can be used to determine proteins based on their Resonance Light Scattering by strongly enhancing the signals. It is useful as a bacterial stain, and as a dye for histiocytes and fibroblasts. Alcian Blue 8GX is used as a heteroglycan stain for neutral, sulfated and phosphated mucopolysaccharides and glycosaminoglycans in tissues such as cartilage and extracellular matrices.
