What are the major applications of CF® dyes?

Ask a question

CF® dyes are ideal for protein labeling because of their high water solubility, which reduces fluorescence quenching. They are also useful for labeling oligonucleotides that require multiple copies of a dye for maximal fluorescence, such as the preparation of FISH probes, where water soluble dyes can minimize fluorescence quenching. Finally, CF® dyes make excellent polar tracers that can be used for visualizing the morphology or long-term tracing of neurons after microinjection. CF® dyes and their conjugates are ideal for fluorescence microscopy applications, flow cytometry, Western blotting, and in vivo imaging (near-IR CF® dyes).
