General description

Atto 532 is a fluorescent label related to the well-known dye Rhodamine 6G. Characteristic features of the label are strong absorption, high fluorescence quantum yield, high photostability, and excellent water solubility. Thus Atto 532 is highly suitable for single-molecule detection applications and high-resolution microscopy such as PALM, dSTORM, STED etc. Additionally the dye highly qualifies to be applied in flow cytometry (FACS), fluorescence in-situ hybridization (FISH) and many more. The fluorescence is excited most efficiently in the range 515 - 545 nm.
A suitable excitation source for Atto 532 is the 532 nm output of the frequency-doubled Nd:YAG laser.

Atto-Dye Labeled Phospholipids
Sigma-Aldrich offers a variety of glycero-phospholipids carrying one or two fatty acid groups (lipophilic groups) and a phosphate ester residue (hydrophilic group). They are labeled at the hydrophilic head group. After incorporation of the phospholipid into a membrane the fluorophore is located at the water/lipid interface of the membrane. We currently provide 1,2-dipalmitoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphoethanolamine (DPPE), 1,2-dioleoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphoethanolamine (DOPE), palmitoyl-sn-glycero-phosphoethanolamine (PPE), and 1,2-dimyristoyl-sn-glycero-3-phospho-ethanolamine (DMPE) labeled with Atto-dyes.
