Biotin labeled, near infrared fluorescent Cy5 dye derivative that has a maximum absorption at 650 nm and emission around 670 nm. Cy5 Biotin can be easily traced from its blue color and strong fluorescence. Unlike Biotin-Fluorescein, whose absorbance and emission are strongly pH dependent, optical properties of Cy5-Biotin are pH insensitive.
