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.
Sulfo-Cyanine5.5 azide is a derivative of water soluble far red emitting fluorescent cyanine dye. The azide group can be conjugated by either copper-catalyzed or copper free Click chemistry. The reagent possesses high aqueous solubility and hydrophilicity, and recommended for the labeling of biomolecules in aqueous environment.
