DyLight™ will be your routine fluorescent dye

GST Antibody conjugated DyLight dye 488 (IF)

Rockland Immunochemicals have developed a suite of fluorescent dyes (DyLight™) with unique fluorescence intensity and photostability. Here, we take a look at how DyLight™ dyes have all the characteristics and potential to become your daily fluorescent dye conjugates.

#1- What makes DyLight™ dyes unique?

Due to high-intensity emission, DyLight™ dyes show high sensitivity levels requiring the use of less conjugate.
Resistant to photobleaching and with negligible bleed-through between fluorophore channels, DyLight™ dyes enable multi-color detection and are completely stable at pH 4-9.

DyLight™ conjugates are ideal substitutes for IRDye® products as far as experimental results and budgets are concerned. For example, DyLight™ 680 and DyLight™ 800 products are an excellent alternative to Infra-Red and Near Infra-Red IRDye® products.

#2- Are DyLight™ dyes compatible with common fluorescence instrumentation?

For use in primary or secondary antibody assays, DyLight™ is compatible with filter and laser settings on popular instrumentation with bright emission spectra that match the principal output wavelengths of common fluorescence instrumentation (Li-Cor Odyssey®, Bio-Rad Chemi-Doc™ MP, UVP BioSpectrum®, Protein Simple Fluorochem, GE Healthcare Typhoon Systems, Leica STED Microscopy, Nikon Confocal & Nikon Super-Resolution).

#3- What range of applications do DyLight™ dyes cover?

DyLight™ conjugated antibodies are ideal for TrueBlot® IP / Western blotting, Multiplex imaging, Flow cytometry, IF, ELISA, High Content screening, High resolution microscopy…
