Description
AlexaFluor®568 hydrazide can be used as a cell tracer and reactive dye for labeling aldehydes or ketones in polysaccharides or glycoproteins. AlexaFluor®568 is a bright red fluorescent dye. The AlexaFluor®568 dye used for stable signal generation in imaging and flow cytometry is water-soluble and insensitive to pH in the range of pH 4 to pH 10.

Detailed information about this AlexaFluor® hydrazide:
• Fluorophore label: AlexaFluor®568 dye
•Reactive group: hydrazide
• Reactivity: Aldehydes or base notes in polysaccharides or glycoproteins
•Ex / Em of conjugate: 576/599 nm
• Extinction coefficient: 86,000 cm-1M-1
