Chromeo™ Tools for Click Chemistry
effective bio-orthogonal labeling with Chromeo™ Dyes
Chromeo™ Dyes – Chromeo 488, Chromeo 494, Chromeo 546 and Chromeo 642 – exhibit superior fluorescent properties, broad Stokes shifts, stability towards photobleaching and pH, and low cell toxicity. In addition, they are compatible with most excitation sources including diode lasers, LEDs, tungsten lamps and xenon arc lamps. For use in bio-orthogonal labeling, Chromeo Dyes are offered as click-reactive azides or alkynes.

Chromeo™ Azide and Alkyne advantages
- High fluorescent intensity
- Photostability – enables multiple exposures and increased exposure time
- pH insensitive
- Low background
- Ready to use in click-reactions
In addition to click chemistry reagents, Chromeo Dyes are offered in a variety of formats like amine reactive NHS-Esters, which have been shown to label amines in peptides, proteins or amino modified DNA.
