CF™555: bright and photostable dye

CF™555: bright and photostable dye

The CF™555 orange-red fluorescent dye is spectrally similar dye to Cy™3 and Alexa Fluor®555 with greater brightness and photostability when compared to Cy™3. CF™555 dye achieves superior performance without being excessively charged.

CF™555 technical details
• 555/565 nm Abs/Em maxima
• 150,000 extinction coefficient
•  ~ 901 molecular weight
• 532 nm or 568 nm excitation laser line
• Direct replacement for Alexa Fluor®555, ATTO550, Cy™3, DyLight®549 and Rhodamine (TRITC)

CF555                 Absorption and emission spectra of CF™555 goat anti-mouse conjugate in PBS.

Benefits of using CF™555
• Much brighter and more photostable than Cy®3
• Not excessively charged
