BHQ-2 - CAS 1214891-99-2

BHQ-2(CAT: I012779) is a compound known as a Black Hole Quencher-2. It is a fluorescence quencher commonly used in molecular biology and diagnostics. BHQ-2 is designed to efficiently quench the fluorescence signal emitted by nearby fluorophores. It is often used as a non-fluorescent reporter molecule in various applications, including real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR) assays, nucleic acid hybridization probes, and fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET) assays. BHQ-2 acts by absorbing and dissipating the energy from the fluorophore, resulting in the suppression of fluorescence emission. This quenching property makes BHQ-2 useful for fluorescence-based detection and analysis in molecular biology research and diagnostics.
