Vector Labs is closed to observe Independence Day (US Holiday) on Thursday, July 4th.
We will be back in the office on Friday. We will respond to emails upon our return. Have a wonderful day.

AZDye 568 Alkyne (CCT-1293)

This product was previously sold as 1087 from Fluoroprobes.

AZDye™ 568 Alkyne is a water-soluble, bright, red-fluorescent dye with excitation ideally suited for the 568 nm laser lines. AZDye™ 568 Alkyne reacts with azides via a copper-catalyzed click reaction (CuAAC) to form a stable triazole linker.

Description

AZDye™ 568 Alkyne is a bright, orange-fluorescent alkyne-activated probe routinely used for imaging of azide-containing biomolecules. AZDye™ 568 Alkyne reacts with azides via a copper-catalyzed click reaction (CuAAC) to form a stable triazole linker.

AZDye 568™ is a bright, and highly photostable, orange-fluorescent probe optimally excited by the 568 nm laser line on the Ar-Kr mixed-gas laser. This probe is water-soluble and its fluorescence is pH independent over a wide pH range. The brightness and photostability of this dye are best suited to direct imaging of low-abundance targets. AZDye™ 568 dye structurally is identical to Alexa Fluor® 568 Dye. Its absorption/emission spectra is a perfect match to spectra of many other fluorescent dyes based on sulfonated rhodamine core, including CF® 568 Dye and Alexa Fluor® 568.

For application where the presence of copper is not acceptable, please consider our AZDye™ 568 DBCO probes for copper-less detection of azide-modified molecules.
