92362 Mix-n-Stain CF405M Small Ligand Labeling Kit
Mix-n-Stain small ligand labeling kits are designed for rapid labeling of low molecular weight (MW approx. 150 -5000) and relatively high affinity biological ligands (or substrates) without a purification step. The ligand to be labeled must contain an aliphatic amine group that is biologically inert. The amino group will form a covalent linkage with the provided reactive CF dyes. For example, suitable ligands or substrates include SNAP-tag, CLIP-tag and HaloTag ligand derivatives that have an aliphatic amine. For more information, please download the Mix-n-Stain small ligand labeling kit flyer and the product information sheet for this product.
This kit is for labeling the small ligand with blue fluorescent CF405M for surface staining of live cells. CF405M is as bright as the spectrally similar dye Pacific Blue?, but is significantly more photostable than the latter. An additional advantage of CF405M is that it has less spillover in the 525/50 green channel than Pacific Blue dye due to narrower emission peak, making CF405M a superior choice in multi-color detection applications.
