Neutral Red Fluorescence This article is only available in the PDF format. Download the PDF to view the article, as well as its associated figures and tables. Abstract To the Editor.— Upon checking my neutral red (0.1% aqueous solution) with a Wood lamp, I noted that it did not fluoresce. My alcohol-based (95% ethanol) neutral red has good fluorescence on a cotton-tipped applicator.A pharmacist mixed up two solutions, one alcoholic and the other aqueous from the same source of neutral red. Again only the alcoholic-based solution fluoresced. I am not able to explain this phenomenon, but since fluorescence is necessary for photoinactivation, I think that the previously mentioned information should be considered if neutral red is used (JAMA 223:289, 1973). http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Archives of Dermatology American Medical Association
