Cymaris Amine NV FNDs are the ideal starting material for preparing custom conjugates of ultrabright and photostable fluorescently labeled proteins or other biopolymers. These probes are functionalized with amine-derivatized PEG, which prevents non-specific interactions and provides a convenient handle for conjugation. The amino FNDs react efficiently with isothiocyanates and succinimidyl esters, or with native carboxylic acids using water-soluble carbodiimides such as ethylene dichloride (EDC). Such derivatives may be used for various labeling and tracking applications that require ultrabright and stable fluorescence.
