Product Description

CF® Dye Succinimidyl Esters (SE, also known as NHS esters) are amine-reactive fluorescent dyes. SE dyes are commonly used to label antibodies and other proteins on free amine groups, such as lysine residues. CF® dyes are Biotium’s line of next-generation fluorescent dyes, which have combined advantages in brightness, photostability, and signal-to-noise compared to other dyes.
