AQuora® 800 – NHS Ester is an amine reactive fluorochrome engineered with SuperHydrophilic technology designed to improve solubility of the dye during labeling reactions and of the dye labeled conjugate. As a result, the dye labeled conjugates made with AQuora® 800 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® 800 is a cyanine-based dye with photophysical properties comparable to Alexa Fluor® 790, IRDye® 800CW, and DyLight® 800.
This AQuora® 800 is activated with a N-hydroxysuccinimide (NHS) ester functional group which reacts with free primary amines, such as the amines on the side chain of lysines, forming a stable amide bond.
