AFDye 488 DBCO
AFDye™ 488 DBCO (Alexa Fluor® 488 DIBO analog) is a water-soluble, green-fluorescent probe for copper-less detection of azide-tagged biomolecules. In application where the presence of copper is a concern AFDye™ 488 DBCO is an ideal alternative to copper requiring fluorescent alkynes.
