Congo Red - CAS 573-58-0

Congo Red(Cat No.:I009427), is a synthetic azo dye widely known for its application as a histological stain to detect amyloid deposits in tissues. It appears as a red powder and exhibits a characteristic apple-green birefringence when viewed under polarized light when bound to amyloid fibrils. This property allows for the identification and visualization of amyloidosis-related conditions in medical diagnostics. Congo Red also finds use as a dye in the textile industry for coloring fabrics and fibers. However, its primary significance lies in its role as a histological stain for amyloid detection.
