This product is concanavalin A (Con A) labeled with our superior near-IR fluorescent dye CF680. Con A is a widely used lectin that selectively binds to a-mannopyranosyl and a-glucopyranosy residues.
CF680 dye (Ex/Em = 681/698 nm) produces conjugates with better signal-to-noise ratio than those prepared from other spectrally similar dyes, such as Alexa Fluor? 680, Cy?5.5 and IRDye? 680 (download the CF680 Flyer for more information).
