Description

Product Description

Phenol red is an acid-base indicator. It is made by condensing two moles of phenol with one mole of o-sulfobenzoic acid anhydride. Phenol red in tissue culture media can act as a weak estrogen, especially with human breast cancer cells. Phenol red can be used to measure hydrogen peroxide in cultured macrophages in multiwell plates.

Application Notes

Phenol Red is used as a pH indicator in cell culture applications. A solution of phenol red will have a yellow color at a pH of 6.4 or below and a red color at a pH of 8.2 and above. Phenol red in tissue culture media can act as a weak estrogen, especially with human breast cancer cells. Phenol red can be used to measure hydrogen peroxide in cultured macrophages in multiwell plates.

Key Applications

Mammalian Cell Culture, pH indicator in cell culture applications
