Acridine Orange is a cell-permeant nucleic acid binding dye that emits green fluorescence when bound to dsDNA and red fluorescence when bound to ssDNA or RNA. This unique characteristic makes acridine orange useful for cell-cycle studies. Acridine orange has also been used as a lysosomal dye. This dye is available in solution (A-3568).
