Mix-n-Stain antibody labeling kits are a revolutionary antibody labeling technology that allows you to label your antibody with biotin or one of our superior CF dyes in 30 minutes without a purification step. The labeling procedure tolerates many common buffer components and antibody stabilizers. Choose from kit sizes to label 5-20 ug, 20-50 ug, or 50-100 ug of your antibody. For more information and guidelines for selecting a kit size, please download the Mix-n-Stain flyer and the product information sheet for this product.
This kit is for labeling an antibody with far-red fluorescent CF660C. CF660C is a cyanine-based dye engineered to be highly water-soluble without being excessively charged. As a result, CF660C-antibody conjugates have high signal-to-noise ratio in immunostaining. CF660C is several fold brighter and significantly more photostable than Alexa Fluor? 660. CF660C absorbs at 667 nm but can still be sufficiently excited by the 633 or 635 nm laser with emission at 685 nm in the borderline spectral region between far-red and near-IR fluorescence.
