Water soluble, amino-reactive sulfo-Cyanine3 NHS ester that efficiently labels proteins and peptides in purely aqueous solution without needing organic co-solvent. Ideal for proteins with low solubility and proteins prone to denaturation.

This is the sulfonated, hydrophilic, and water-soluble dye. Non-sulfonated Cyanine3 NHS ester is also available.

This product is an analog of Cy3® NHS ester. sulfo-Cyanine3 NHS ester replaces Cy3® and DyLight 549 for all applications.
