What is the wavelength of Texas Red?

Wavelength of Texas Red

Texas Red is a fluorescent dye commonly used in biological and medical imaging. It is part of the rhodamine family of dyes, which are known for their bright fluorescence and photostability. Texas Red is particularly useful for applications requiring fluorescence in the red part of the visible spectrum.

Key Characteristics:

  • Excitation Wavelength: Approximately 595 nm
  • Emission Wavelength: Approximately 615 nm

These wavelengths mean that Texas Red is excited by yellow or orange light and emits red light. This property makes it valuable for various fluorescence-based applications, including microscopy, flow cytometry, and fluorescent in situ hybridization (FISH).
