* Approximate absorption (Abs) and fluorescence (Em) maxima, in nm, for the goat anti–mouse IgG antibody or dextran conjugates in aqueous buffer. † Not recommended for derivatizing proteins.

(C3) = Propionic acid.
(C5) = Pentanoic acid.
(COOH) = Carboxylic acid.(SSE) = Sulfosuccinimidyl ester.
(STP) = 4-Sulfotetrafluorophenyl ester.
(X) = Aminohexanoyl spacer separating the dye and the SE.
