Pyrene is a polyaromatic hydrocarbon with strong short-wavelength fluorescence. Unlike other fluorescent dyes, polyaromatic hydrocarbons are fluorescent probes with strong sensitivity to microenvironment. Thus, its fluorescence is different in polar, and nonpolar environments. Other effects can also be observed.

When two pyrenes are in close proximity, they form excimers. Excimer formation can be easily observed, and quantitatively estimated using fluorescent spectra.

Pyrene azide is a reagent for easy pyrene Click Chemistry labeling of any alkyne-bearing molecule. It allows to turn any molecule into pyrene-bearing probe.

This azide contains hydrophilic triethyleneglycol linker to mitigate intrinsic pyrene hydrophobicity, and facilitate attachment to biomolecules in aqueous solutions.

Another pyrene azide for Click Chemistry labeling is also available: Pyrene azide 2.

BDP TMR azide

Borondipyrromethene dye with azido group. Spectral properties are similar to TAMRA dye. Due to long fluorescence lifetime, BDP TMR is especially useful for fluorescence polarization measurements.

Sulfo-Cyanine3 azide

Water-soluble sulfo-Cyanine3 dye azide for Click Chemistry.

Coumarin 343 X azide

Coumarin 343 is a blue emitting fluorophore that can serve as a FRET donor for fluorescein (FAM). This azide derivative can be conjugated with alkynes by Click chemistry. An extended linker arm between the fluorophore and the azide group enhances solubility, and provides spatial separation between the dye and the biomolecule.
