Fluorescent labeling of biomolecules enables researchers to detect specific components of complex biological assemblies with exquisite sensitivity in applications ranging from imaging and flow cytometry, to western blots. We offer a full spectrum of Invitrogen labeling chemistries for labeling antibodies, proteins, peptides, ligands, synthetic oligonucleotides and other biomolecules for use with immunochemistry, fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH), cell tracing, receptor labeling, and cytochemistry applications as well as probing biological structure, function and interactions. Also available are tools for conjugation of biotin and other haptens to biomolecules.

Labeling amines

Labeling Amines   Amine-reactive dyes are widely used to modify proteins, peptides, ligands, synthetic oligonucleotides and other biomolecules. They are most often used to prepare bioconjugates for immunochemistry, fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH), cell tracing, receptor labeling and cytochemistry.



Labeling thiols

Labeling Thiols   Efficiently prepare fluorescent proteins, peptides, and sulfhydryl-modified oligos for analyzing protein structure and function.



Click chemistries

Click Chemistries  

Click-iT products employ click chemistry—a powerful method for joining biomolecules quickly and specifically.
