DescriptionFar-red / near-infrared emitting fluorescent dye alkyne.
- 1,1-Dimethyl-3-[6-oxo-6-(prop-2-ynylamino)hexyl]-2-[(1E,3E,5E)-5-(1,1,3-trimethyl-1H-benzo[e]indol-2(3H)-ylidene)penta-1,3-dienyl]-1H-benzo[e]indolium chloride
- Cy5.5 alkyne
Far red / near-infrared emitting dye alkyne for Click Chemistry labeling. Analog of Cy5.5® alkyne. Can be conjugated with azido groups under mild copper catalyzed Click Chemistry conditions. Soluble in organic solvents, but mixtures of water with small percent of DMSO can be used for efficient conjugation.

Solubility overviewSoluble in DMSO and in ethanol
Wherever possible, you should prepare and use solutions on the same day. However, if you need to make up stock solutions in advance, we recommend that you store the solution as aliquots in tightly sealed vials at -20°C. Generally, these will be useable for up to one month. Before use, and prior to opening the vial we recommend that you allow your product to equilibrate to room temperature for at least 1 hour.
