I started this topic about DRAQ5 two days before and since then I
obtained much information about it.
First from: http://www.biostatus.co.uk/products.html (don't forget the
FAQ !) All of the technical data available here.
2nd: I've found some abstracts on the internet regarding the
applications of DRAQ5
(e.g. www.molecularprobes.com/resources/focus/1999/poster3.html).
3rd: this is the future for me because I will obtain DRAQ5 today (I
hope) and in some days I can report my first results.
Some answers to your question:
1. From whom can it be purchased from USA?
You can order it via the internet and purchase it directly from
Biostatus, from UK.
2. Can it also be used as a live/dead discriminator, since
it couples with DNA?
I don't think so, because DRAQ5 is vital dye and stains the live and
dead cells equally.
3. Are there any dangers in handling namely carcinogenic?
It's a suspected mutagen.
