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 Aminooxy
CF® dyes with an aminooxy reactive group are useful for fluorescently labeling aldehyde or ketone groups on target molecules such as polysaccharides, glycoproteins or antibodies.
CF® Dye Succinimidyl Ester
CF® dye SE or NHS esters are amine-reactive fluorescent dyes. They are commonly used to label primary amines of antibodies and other proteins, amine-modified oligonucleotides and other amine-containing molecules.
EDC (or EDAC) (1-(3-Dimethylaminopropyl-3-ethylcarbodiimide, hydrochloride)) has recently been found to be very useful for fixing in situ chelators, including the fluorescent ion indicators for histological studies following physiological experiments. EDC is also a widely used reagent to activate carboxy groups for amine coupling.
