CF™488A succinimidyl ester (CF™488A SE) is a superior green fluorescent dye with an amine-reactive group (i.e., succinimidyl ester group). CF™488A is a superior alternative to the traditional green fluorescent dye FITC (or fluorescein) owing to its exceptional brightness and photostability. CF™488A has brightness and photostability comparable to Alexa Fluor® 488. However, protein conjugates prepared from CF™488A are more specific than those prepared from Alexa Fluor® 488 because CF™488A, being minimally charged, does not significantly change the isoelectric points of the proteins like Alexa Fluor® 488 can.
