AnaSpec Introduces HiLyte Fluor™ 750
News Jan 04, 2010
Highlighting its collection of high performance HiLyte Fluor™ dyes, AnaSpec has introduced HiLyte Fluor™ 750.
Spectrally similar to Cy7™ dye, HiLyte Fluor™ 750 dye is the longest-wavelength HiLyte Fluor™ dye currently available. Its fluorescence emission maximum at 778 nm is well separated from commonly used far-red fluorophores, including HiLyte Fluor™ 647, HiLyte Fluor™ 680 or allophycocyanin (APC), facilitating multicolor analysis.
Extinction coefficient is 275,000 M-1cm-1, with a quantum yield of 0.12. With a peak excitation at ~753 nm, conjugates of HiLyte Fluor™ 750 dyes can be excited by a xenon-arc lamp or dye-pumped lasers operating in the 720–750 nm range. Its near infrared spectra render the HiLyte Fluor™ 750 dye the ideal candidate for in vitro and in vivo tissue imaging.

Proteome of the Human Heart Mapped for the First TimeNews
Scientists have determined which and how many individual proteins are present in each type of cell that occurs in the heart. In doing so, they compiled the first atlas of the healthy human heart, known as the cardiac proteome. The atlas will make it easier to identify differences between healthy and diseased hearts in future.READ MORE
