Biotin-CryptoFluor Crimson

BioReagent, suitable for fluorescence



General description

The CryptoFluor dyes are phycobiliproteins isolated from cryptomonad algae that provide additional spectral characteristics to complement the more common phycobiliproteins (e.g., R-PE and APC) as well as providing much smaller molecular weights (around 40,000 Daltons). These characteristics are meant to provide additional functionality to the phycobiliprotein pigments when it comes to multiplexing assays or to getting dyes into the cell.


Bottomless glass bottle. Contents are inside inserted fused cone.
