The green-fluorescent Alexa Fluor® 488 azide is reactive with terminal alkynes via a copper-catalyzed click reaction. In addition to being an exceedingly bright and photostable fluorophore for use with flow cytometry, microscopy and HCS, Alexa Fluor® 488 can also be utilized as a bio-orthogonal or biologically unique hapten for use in applications requiring signal amplification.
