    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.

    CF® Dye Biocytin

    CF® Dye biocytin is a cell-impermeant, fixable polar tracer that is a conjugate of CF® Dye and biotin with an aldehyde-fixable primary amine. Polar tracers are commonly used to investigate cell-cell and cell-liposome fusion as well as membrane permeability and transport through gap junctions or cell uptake during pinocytosis.

    CF® Dye Dextran 10,000 MW, Anionic and Fixable

    CF® Dye labeled dextrans could be used as a fluorescent fluid-phase markers to study cell permeability, endocytosis, or mechanisms of biomolecular delivery. The dextran is 10,000 MW, and contains a formaldehyde-fixable free-amine group.

    CF® Dye Hydrazide

    Fluorescent CF® dye hydrazides are bright, extremely water-soluble, nontoxic molecules, useful as aldehyde-fixable cell tracers. They can also be used to label aldehyde or ketone groups of polysaccharides, carbohydrates or glycoproteins.

    Streptavidin Conjugates
