Quantum yield
DiPO™-1 is the same compound to POPO®-1 (POPO® is the trademark of ThermoFisher). DiPO™-1 is a high-affinity nucleic acid stain based upon a symmetric cyanine dye dimer that is essentially nonfluorescent in the absence of nucleic acids that exhibits excitation/emission maxima ~434/456 nm when bound to nucleic acids. POPO-1 is a Blue emitting dye that can be excited by the 405 laser and emission captured by the 450/50 filter. It is commonly used as a nucleic acid stain in flow cytometry and fluorescence microscopy.
