Application Note: Seeing Beyond the Visible With IRDye® Infrared Dyes
21 June 2011
This application note outlines IRDye infrared dyes, a useful tool for fluorescent labelling of protein and cellular assays, biochemical assays,microscopy, and in vivo molecular imaging. The dyes are bright, have excellent water solubility,and exhibit low non-specific binding. Background fluorescence is reduced at NIR wavelengths, enabling a variety of fluorescent applications that were previously impractical.
