92350 Mix-n-Stain CF488A 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 green fluorescent CF488A for surface staining of live cells. CF488A is a superior alternative to the traditional green fluorescent dye FITC (or fluorescein) owing to its exceptional brightness and photostability. CF488A has brightness and photostability comparable to Alexa Fluor? 488.
