Allophycocyanin (APC) is an intensely bright phycobiliprotein isolated from red algae that exhibits far-red fluorescence with high quantum yields. It is excited by laser lines at 594 and 633 nm, with an absorbance maximum at 650 nm and a fluorescence emission peak at 660 nm.
APC is a large chemically-crosslinked molecule used in fluorescence-based detection, primarily for flow cytometry, microarray assays, ELISAs, and other applications that require high sensitivity, but not photostability. We offer a broad range of APC products, including primary antibodies, secondary antibodies, streptavidin, and tandem conjugates. In practical applications, the sensitivity of APC conjugates is usually 5 to 10 times greater than that of the corresponding fluorescein conjugate.
Protocols that fit your needs in flow cytometry ranging from sample preparation to numerous cell stimulation conditions, staining, immunophenotyping, and data analysis strategies.
