Product Description

CF® Dye with a methyltetrazine group react with cyclooctene (TCO, methylcyclopropene) containing molecules via copper-free click chemistry. This copper-free bioorthogonal reaction is useful for labeling live cells, or when there are concerns about native protein function loss with copper in cell extracts. Membrane-permeant CF® Dye methyltetrazine options are also available for intracellular labeling reactions.

Available CF® Dye methyltetrazine derivatives: CF®488A, CF®532, CF®555, CF®568, CF®594, CF®640R, CF®647, CF®680, and CF®680R including membrane-permeant CF®500, and CF®650 methyltetrazine.

  • Fluorescent labeling of cyclooctene (TCO, methylcyclopropene) groups on target molecules via copper-free bioorthonal chemistry.
  • Membrane-impermeant and membrane-permeant forms for  surface or intracellular labeling of live cells or cell extracts.
  • Bright, photostable and water-soluble CF® Dyes are excellent options for fluorescent labeling.


CF® Dye methyltetrazines have improved chemical stability compared to CF® Dye tetrazines. We also offer CF® Dye TCO.

Superior CF® Dyes

Biotium’s next-generation CF® Dyes were designed to be highly water-soluble with advantages in brightness and photostability compared to Alexa Fluor®, DyLight®, and other fluorescent dyes. Learn more about CF® Dyes. For more information download the CF® Dye Brochure.
