Anhydrous DMSO (dimethyl sulfoxide; methyl sulfoxide) is recommended for preparing stock solutions of AM ester dyes, reactive dyes and other related moisture-sensitive products.
CF® Dye Biotin
Potential applications of Biotin-CF® dye include detection of biotin binding sites and the degree of biotinylation of proteins, and for the measurement of avidin and streptavidin in crude biological samples. In addition, biotin-CF® dye can be used as a polar tracer by microinjection to study the morphology of cells.
