AQuora® 650 – Maleimide is a thiol-reactive fluorochrome engineered with SuperHydrophilic technology designed to improve solubility of the dye during labeling and of the dye labeled conjugate. As a result, the dye labeled conjugates made with AQuora® 650 yield enhanced signal and signal-to-noise ratios in fluorescence based applications including fluorescent western blotting, fluorescence-based microscopy, flow cytometry, and cell based assays. AQuora® 650 is a cyanine-based dye with photophysical properties comparable to Alexa Fluor® 647, Cy5, and DyLight® 650.
This AQuora® 650 is activated with a maleimide (MAL) functional group which reacts with thiols to form thioethers.
