Cyanine5 maleimide is a mono-reactive dye which selectively couples with thiol groups (for example, with cysteines in peptides and proteins) to give labeled conjugates.

Cyanine5 is an analog of Cy5®, a common fluorophore which is compatible with various instrumentation like microscopes, imagers, and fluorescence readers.

For the labeling of antibodies and sensitive proteins we recommend to use the water soluble sulfo-Cyanine5 maleimide.

Sulfo-Cyanine5.5 amine

Sulfo-Cyanine5.5 is a far red/NIR fluorophore possessing high hydrophilicity and aqueous solubility. The dye displays good brightness in far red region due to outstanding molar extinction coefficient. This is amine derivative which is reactive towards electrophiles. It can also be used for enzymatic transamination labeling.
