AbFluor™ 488, succinimidyl ester

Product Information

  • Product name

    AbFluor™ 488, succinimidyl ester

Fig. AbFluor™ 488 is a green fluorescent dye optimally excitable by the 488 nm argon laser line, which is super alternative to FITC, Alexa Fluor 488.

Product Properties

  • Features & Benefits

    • λEX/λEm: 490/515 nm • Extinction coefficient: 73, 000 • Provide the same or better fluorescence and photostability as FITC, Oregon Green 488, FAM, Cy2.

  • Molecular weight


  • Usage notes

    • Product storage concentration is 5-10 mg/mL. In order to prevent degeneration and microorganism growth, it recommended adding BSA (0.01%) and sodium azide (0.03%) to the storage solution.
    • Due to the fluorescent quenching, please pay attention to protect the product from light.
    • For your safety and health, please wear a lab coat and disposable gloves.

  • Storage instructions

    Store at -20°C. The product can be stored for up to 6 months. Protect from light.

Additional Information

  • Background

    AbFluor™ 488, succinimidyl ester is a green fluorescent dye to label protein or other biological molecules with amino. 5-AbFluor™ 488 is similar to Alexa Fluor 488, FITC. Due to its higher quantum range, excellent water solubility and it rarely change the isoelectric point of proteins, makes it’s better for protein staining. 5-AbFluor™ 488, succinimidyl ester, therefore, is the ideal choice for labelling protein.

  • Alternative names

    Dylight 488
