This product is prepared by labeling high quality F(ab′)2 fragment of goat anti-mouse IgG (H+L) with the far-red fluorescent dye CF640R. CF640R is a novel rhodamine-based dye spectrally very similar to Cy5 and Alexa Fluor 647. CF640R is much brighter than Cy5 and at least as bright as Alexa Fluor 647 when excited at 633 or 635 nm. However, the most important advantage of CF640R is its exceptional photostability. CF640R is far more photostable than the cyanine-based dyes Cy5 and Alexa Fluor 647. It is also more photostable than Atto 647N, a dye that has been extensively used in single molecule-based imaging. CF640R is also extremely water-soluble and pH-insensitive. These properties make CF640R a much better alternative to Cy5, Alexa Fluor 647 and other spectrally similar dyes.
