Additional Information
Molecular Probes® Alexa Fluor® Antibody Labeling Kits provide a convenient means to label small amounts of antibodies with Alexa Fluor® dyes (choice of 10 colors). This kit is optimized for labeling 100 µg of antibody per reaction with far red fluorescent Alexa Fluor® 647. Comparably small amounts of other proteins (>40 kDa) can also be labeled.

The kit contains everything you need to perform five separate labeling reactions as well as to purify the resulting conjugates. Conjugates are ideal for multiple applications, including flow cytometry, fluorescent microscopy, immunohistochemistry, primary detection, ELISAs, immunocytochemistry, indirect FISH, and more.

Important Features of Alexa Fluor® 647 Antibody Labeling Kit:
• With an excitation and emission maximum of 650/668 nm, Alexa Fluor® 647 can be efficiently excited using a 633 or 635 nm Kr or He-Ne laser line and detected under standard APC/Cy5® filters
• Labeled proteins typically ready to use typically in 90 min (∼15 min hands-on time)
• Useful for labeling 100 µg of protein
• Optimized for small-scale labeling of any protein >40 kDa
• Purified using convenient spin filters
• Stabilizing proteins must be removed from the sample before labeling
• Includes detailed instructions for determining degree of labeling (DOL)

Better Results and Workflows with Primary labeled antibodies
A primary antibody directly labeled with a fluorophore often produces lower background fluorescence and less nonspecific binding. Further, multiple primary antibodies of the same isotype or derived from the same species can easily be used in the same experiment if they are directly labeled with compatible fluorophores.

Superior Alexa Fluor® Dyes
Compared to traditional dyes, Alexa Fluor® dyes are brighter, more photostable, and more pH resistant between pH 4 and 10. And generally when using Alexa Fluor® dyes, higher degrees of labeling can be achieved without intramolecular quenching. For details see Alexa Fluor® Dyes Spanning the Visible and Infrared Spectrum—Section 1.3.
