Fluorescent dye that is water-soluble and forms stable Schiff Base with carbonyl group. Fluorescent Dye 488-I Hydrazide conjugates are significantly brighter than fluorescein conjugates and much more photostable. Additionally, the fluorescence of Fluorescent Dye 488-I Hydrazide is not affected by pH between 4-10. Compared to Alexa Fluor 488, Fluorescent Dye 488-I Hydrazide of single isomer has much hihger purity, bringing better performance consistancy from batch to batch.
Labeling of biological molecules, e.g. Antibody, Protein, for fluorescence imaging and other fluorescence-based biochemical analysis.
Store the product in desiccated environment at -20°C and avoid from light.
Maximum Excitation/Emission wavelength: 491/514 nm
