General description

Nuclear Fast Red is an anthraquinone dye, and isalso called as calcium red.


Used as a red nuclear counterstain. Nuclear Fast Red solution has been used:
  • In the dual-beam (FIB (focused ion beam)/SEM (scanning electron microscopy)) analysis of intracellular MNPs (magnetic nanoparticles) distribution.
  • As a counterstain in LacZ tissue histological analysis, and in extracellular matrix proteoglycan staining.
  • In situ hybridization.


Nuclear fast red 0.1% in 5% aluminum sulfate.
