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.

Cy3 Alkyne (CCT-TA117)

This product was previously sold as 1306 from Fluoroprobes.


Cy3 Alkyne can be reacted with azides via a copper-catalyzed click reaction (CuAAC) forming a stable triazole and does not require elevated temperatures. This red fluorescent probe is water-soluble, and its fluorescence is pH-insensitive from pH 4 to pH 10. Its excitation peak is ideally suited for the 532 nm or 555 nm laser lines and its absorption and emission spectra are almost identical to those of Alexa Fluor® 555, CF® 555 Dye or any other Cyanine3 based fluorescent dyes.
