CF®594 is a deep-red fluorescent dye spectrally similar to Alexa Fluor® 594 and Texas Red® dye (Figure 1). It is significantly brighter than Alexa Fluor® 594 when conjugated to proteins, due to its high quantum yield and exceptional water solubility (Figure 2). CF®594 also is very photostable (Figure 3), making it ideal for demanding applications such as confocal microscopy. Its emission is well-separated from green dyes like CF®488A for multicolor imaging.
