    AFDye™ 555 Azide can be reacted with terminal alkynes via a copper-catalyzed click reaction (CuAAC). It also reacts with strained cyclooctyne via a copper-free “click chemistry” reaction to form a stable triazole and does not require Cu-catalyst or elevated temperatures. The brightness and photostability of this dye are best suited to direct imaging of low-abundance targets.

    AFDye™ 555 Azide is a water-soluble, bright orange-fluorescent dye with excitation ideally suited for the 532 nm or 555 nm laser lines and visualized with TRITC (tetramethylrhodamine) filter sets. AFDye™ 555 conjugates of antibodies, peptides, and proteins are pH insensitive from pH 4 to pH 10. The brightness and photostability of this dye are best suited to direct imaging of low-abundance targets.

    AFDye™ 555 Azide can be reacted with terminal alkynes via a copper-catalyzed click reaction (CuAAC). It also reacts with strained cyclooctyne via a copper-free “click chemistry” reaction to form a stable triazole and does not require Cu-catalyst or elevated temperatures. The brightness and photostability of this dye are best suited to direct imaging of low-abundance targets.

    AFDye™ 555 is structurally similar to Alexa Fluor® 555, and spectrally is almost identical to Cy3 Dye, Alexa Fluor® 555, CF® 555 Dye, or any other Cyanine3 based fluorescent dyes. AFDye™ 555 Azide can be used a less expensive alternative to Alexa Fluor® 555 Azide.
