IRDye® 800RS NHS Ester

IRDye 800RS Infrared Fluorescent Dye Labels Nucleic Acids Easily.

IRDye 800RS infrared dye is an excellent choice for nucleic acid applications. This near-infrared fluorescence dye has good water solubility, but low salt tolerance. It is more hydrophobic than IRDye 800CW.

IRDye 800RS NHS ester can be used to label the primary and secondary amino groups of DNA and RNA. Nucleic acids that have been labeled with IRDye 800RS can be easily purified by reverse-phase chromatography.
