AZDye 568 Azide (CCT-1291)

[text-backorder]

This product was previously sold as 1084 from Fluoroprobes.

Description

AZDye™ 568 Azide is a bright, red-fluorescent azide-activated probe that reacts with terminal alkynes via a copper-catalyzed click reaction (CuAAC). It also reacts with strained cyclooctyne via a copper-free click chemistry reaction to form a stable triazole and does not require Cu-catalyst or elevated temperatures.

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.
