AZDye 633 Picolyl Azide
AZDye™ 633 Picolyl Azide is an advanced fluorescent probe that incorporates a copper-chelating motif to raise the effective concentration of Cu(I) at the reaction site to boost the efficiency of the CuAAC reaction, resulting in a faster and more biocompatible CuAAC labeling. Up to 40-fold increase of signal intensity, compared to conventional azides, was reported (see Selected References).
AZDye™ 633 Azide is a bright and photostable far-red fluorescent probe with excitation ideally suited to the 633 nm or 635 nm laser excitation source. AZDye™ 633 Azide is water-soluble, pH-insensitive from pH 4 to pH 10. AZDye™ 633 spectrally is almost identical to Alexa Fluor® 633, DyLight® 633 or CF® 633 Dye. Combination of superior brightness and very low autofluorescence background signal in most biological samples in far-red spectral region allows for very sensitive detection of alkyne-labeled biomolecules.
