Cy®3 is a bright, water-soluble, and pH insensitive orange-fluorescent dye that can be excited using the 532 nm or 555 nm laser line and visualized with TRITC (tetramethylrhodamine) filter sets. Cy3 conjugates give less background than TAMRA and most other commonly used fluorescent dyes.
This sulfonated dye is also known as sulfo-Cyanine3 Acid. Cy®Dye is a trademark of GE Healthcare.
