SAE0059 Sigma-Aldrich


Synonym: OF




The Oxyrase® Enzyme System in OxyFluor removes dissolved oxygen effectively and efficiently. This significantly reduces or eliminates the formation of oxygen free radicals under conditions employed for fluorescent microscopy and results in brighter cell images. OxyFluor provides a protective effect for the biological material being studied and is an excellent solution for live cell imaging and cell culture applications.

Biochem/physiol Actions

OxyFluor is used at a 1:100 dilution. Lactate is a convenient substrate at 10 mM to 20 mM concentration.

Other Notes

There are no reports of Oxyrase® having an adverse effect on biological systems. Oxyrase® does not produce toxic compounds in the course of reducing oxygen to water.
