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.

F-ara-EdU (CCT-1403)



F-ara-EdU is a probe for DNA synthesis that is less toxic compared to 5-ethynyl-2′-deoxyuridine (EdU) and BrdU. Ideally suited for metabolic DNA labeling experiments where long-term cell survival and/or deep-tissue imaging are desired. The alkyne handler can be used for subsequent ligation to azide-containing molecules through a highly efficient click chemistry reaction.
