Andy Fluor 488 free acid


Andy Fluor™ 488 is a bright, green fluorescent dye with excitation ideally suited for the 488 nm laser line. Andy Fluor™ 488 is bright, water soluable and pH-insensitive from pH 4 to pH 10. Andy Fluor™ 488 can be used as a replacement for DyLight 488, Cy2, FITC, FAM.

The NHS ester (or succinimidyl ester) is the most popular amine reactive group for labeling with the primary amines (R-NH2) of proteins, amine-modified oligonucleotides, and other amine-containing molecules. The resulting Andy Fluor™ conjugate will exhibit brighter fluorescence and greater photostability than the conjugates of other spectrally similar fluorophores.
