Product nameSulfo-Cyanine5 NHS ester, Amine-reactive red emitting fluorescent dye
DescriptionWater soluble amine reactive red emitting fluorescent dye.
- Sulfo-Cy5 NHS ester
Water soluble amine reactive red emitting fluorescent dye. Used for the labeling of various amine-containing molecules in aqueous phase without use of any organic co-solvent. Useful for the labeling of proteins which denature in the presence of organic co-solvents, as well as for proteins with low solubility.
Chemical namePotassium 1-[6-(2,5-dioxopyrrolidin-1-yloxy)-6-oxohexyl]-3,3-dimethyl-2-[(1E,3E,5E)-5-(1,3,3-trimethyl-5-sulfonatoindolin-2-ylidene)penta-1,3-dienyl]-3H-indolium-5-sulfonate
Storage instructionsStore at -20°C. It is important to note that this product is reported to be light sensitive. Store In the Dark. Store under desiccating conditions.
Solubility overviewSoluble in DMSO and in water
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.
