Hi,


I was wondering about Nile Red storage after reconstitution in DMSO, most people aliquot it and keep it a -20C but I have also seen people storing it at room temperature in the dark.

Are both of these solutions ok ?

Thank you

I would keep at RT in dark since it's not an organism.

Nile red is not a super molecule.

No but it's fluorescent so my concern was about possible chemical degradation/ quenching at RT
