DyLight 680

Fluorescent dye properties, example data, product guide and references.

Thermo Scientific DyLight 680 produces near-infrared (IR) fluorescence that replaces other near-IR dyes, including Cy5.5* and Alexa Fluor* 680, and is ideal for multi-color applications. DyLight 680 is available as reactive labeling agents and as conjugates of secondary antibodies and biotin-binding proteins for use in fluorescence microscopy, flow cytometry, Western blotting, ELISA, high-content screening and other array platforms.

Immunofluorescence microscopy using Thermo Scientific DyLight 680 dye. Cytokeratin 18 (pseudo-colored yellow) and lamin A (blue) in A549 cells were fluorescently labeled with their respective primary antibodies and DyLight 680-Conjugated Goat Anti-Rabbit or DyLight 405-Conjugated Goat Anti-Mouse Secondary Antibodies, respectively.

In-cell ELISA DyLight 680 800 fluorophore fluorescence signal multiplex
Multiplex analysis of multiple targets using an In-Cell ELISA Near Infrared Detection Kit. Relative levels of total (red) and phosphorlylated (green) STAT3, STAT6 and EGFR were measured in untreated A431 cells and compared to cells treated with 100ng/mL EGF alone or EGF and 25 nM PD168393 (EGFR inhibitor). After probing with their respective primary antibodies, the total amount of each protein was fluorescently detected with a DyLight 680-Conjugated Secondary Antibody and counterstained for the phosphorylated form of each protein with DyLight 800-Conjugated Secondary Antibody. Cells were also labeled in the absence of primary antibody (no 1°) as a control for nonspecific binding of the secondary antibodies. Cells were imaged with the Odyssey* Infrared Imaging System using the 700 and 800 channels.

Thermo Scientific DyLight 680 produces fluorescence intensity comparable to Alexa Fluor* 680. Cytokeratin 18 (red) in A549 cells was fluorescently labeled with a rabbit polyclonal anti-cytokeratin 18 antibody and DyLight 680 (left panel) or Alexa Fluor* 680 (right panel)-Conjugated Highly Cross-Adsorbed Goat Anti-Rabbit Secondary Antibody. Nuclei were counterstained with Hoechst dye. All images were captured using identical microscopic and camera settings.
