Zip Alexa Fluor™ 647 Rapid Antibody Labeling Kit (Invitrogen™)

Zip Alexa Fluor Rapid Antibody Labeling kits allow you to efficiently label your precious antibody with Alexa Flour dyes to create an antibody conjugate that is ready to use within 15 minutes.

• Very fast and easy to use
• 100% antibody recovery—no purification steps
• Useful for a wide range of applications
• No chemistry or conjugation experience needed
• 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

The kit contains everything you need to perform three separate labeling reactions. Conjugates are ideal for multiple applications, including flow cytometry, fluorescent microscopy, immunohistochemistry, primary detection, ELISAs, immunocytochemistry, and indirect FISH.

Better results and workflows with labeled primary 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.

We offer a wide selection of Molecular Probes antibody and protein labeling kits to fit your starting material and experimental setup. See Antibody Labeling from A to Z.

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.

Fluorescein - NIST-Traceable Standard - Nominal concentration 50µM - Special Packaging (Invitrogen™)

The NIST-traceable fluorescein standard is supplied as a calibrated 50 µM solution of fluorescein in 100 mM sodium borate buffer, pH 9.5. Under these conditions, fluorescein is completely ionized and is therefore in its most fluorescent form. This standard meets the stringent criteria established by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and is directly traceable to Standard Reference Material 1932 (SRM 1932). The NIST-traceable fluorescent standard can be used to assess day-to-day or experiment-to-experiment variation in fluorescence-based instrumentation as well as to determine the Molecules of Equivalent Soluble Fluorophore (MESF) value for an experimental solution.

Alexa Fluor™ 633 Carboxylic Acid, tris(triethylammonium) salt (Invitrogen™)

Alexa Fluor® 633 Carboxylic Acid is a non-reactive form of Alexa Fluor® 633 that can be used as a reference standard for dye-conjugates. Additionally, this carboxylic acid derivative can be converted to an amine-reactive ester using standard chemical techniques or coupled to hydrazines, hydroxylamines, and amines in aqueous solution using water-soluble carbodiimides such as EDAC (Cat. No. E2247).

Characteristics of Alexa Fluor® 633 dye include:

• Laser line: 633 or 635 nm
• Excitation maxima: 632 nm
• Emission maxima: 647 nm

More About Alexa Fluor® 633 Dye
The Alexa Fluor 633 dye and its conjugates are a perfect match to the 633 nm spectra line of the He-Ne laser or the 635 nm spectral line of red diode lasers. This and other far-red fluorescent Alexa Fluor® dyes are important labels for fluorescence imaging because their spectra are beyond the range of most sample autofluorescence.

The specially packaged Alexa Fluor® 647 dye is compatible with both aminoallyl dUTP- and aminoallyl UTP-modified nucleotides as well as most commercially available aminoallyl-based labeling kits.

Alexa Fluor™ 594 Carboxylic Acid, tris(triethylammonium) salt (Invitrogen™)

Alexa Fluor® 594 Carboxylic Acid is a non-reactive form of Alexa Fluor® 594 that can be used as a reference standard for dye-conjugates. Additionally, this carboxylic acid derivative can be converted to an amine-reactive ester using standard chemical techniques or coupled to hydrazines, hydroxylamines, and amines in aqueous solution using water-soluble carbodiimides such as EDAC (Cat. No. E2247).

Characteristics of Alexa Fluor® 594 dye include:

• Laser line: 561 or 594 nm
• Common filter set: Texas Red
• Excitation maxima: 590 nm
• Emission maxima: 617 nm

More About Alexa Fluor® 594 Dye
Alexa Fluor® 594 dye is a bright, red-fluorescent dye that can be excited using the 561 or 594 nm laser lines. It serves as a direct replacement for Texas Red® dye with bright signal and excellent photostability, especially in fixed cells. Alexa Fluor® 594 dye is commonly used with DAPI, and Alexa Fluor® 488 and 647 dyes for multiplexing. Learn more about this dye and related products.
