We are ready to say that labeling in aqueous environment doesn't require extra costs anymore!
Great efforts were made by our production team to scale-up the synthesis of some sulfonated Cyanines in order to improve cost efficiency. As a result, Lumiprobe reduces the prices of some sulfonated derivatives of Cyanine3 and Cyanine5, including Sulfo-Cyanine3 NHS ester, Sulfo-Cyanine5 NHS ester, Sulfo-Cyanine3 carboxylic acid, Sulfo-Cyanine5 carboxylic acid. Now we offer these water soluble products for the same price as non-sulfonated Cyanines.
Sulfo- dyes are water-soluble, and no organic co-solvent is needed for the labeling in aqueous environment. They are less prone to aggregation in water. If you don’t know yet what type to choose we have prepared the article about sulfonated vs. non-sulfonated Cyanines.
