Andy Fluor™ 680 Annexin V

Introduction

Andy Fluor™ 680 Annexin V is Annexin V conjugated with our far-red fluorescent dye Andy Fluor™ 680. Annexin V is a calcium-dependent phospholipid-binding proteins, which bind to phosphatidylserine (PS) to identify apoptotic cells. In normal viable cells, PS is located on the cytoplasmic surface of the cell membrane. In apoptotic cells, however, PS is translocated from the inner to the outer leaflet of the plasma membrane, making itself available for Annexin V binding.

Andy Fluor™ 680 is a superior alternative to Cy5.5, or Alexa Fluor® 680 owing to its exceptional brightness and photostability.

Our Andy Fluor™ 680 Annexin V is provided as lyophilized power, which is enough for 100 assays.

Reconstitution:  We recommend a quick spin followed by reconstitution in 500 μl distilled water, and store at 4°C.

Applications

Cell apoptosis analysis.
