Rose bengal diacetate
Product ID: M0780
This diacetate derivative of rose bengal exhibits greatly improved membrane permeability, allowing it to accumulate intracellularly where esterase activity releases the active rose bengal photosensitizer.
|Soluble In||CH2Cl2, DMSO|
|Storage Conditions||-20C, Desiccated|
|Notes||Upon esterase activation Rose Bengal Product M1277 is released with ABS= 561 nm|
