Active Motif's secondary antibody conjugates offer an improved method for the detection of primary antibodies. Having developed many quality primary antibodies, we found that the quality of secondary antibodies was also key to producing superior results. We therefore offer these secondary antibodies, conjugated to a number of top-quality molecules, including HRP and the Chromeo™ line of fluorescent dyes, giving you a variety of choices for detecting primary antibodies bound to their targets. To conjugate the Chromeo Dyes to primary antibodies and other proteins, we offer our complete, optimized antibody/protein labeling kits.

Active Motif's ATTO dye conjugates have been maximally cross-adsorbed against IgG's of a variety of species to eliminate background caused by non-specific binding. The fluorescent ATTO (STED) secondary antibody conjugatesand the fluorescent Chromeo™ 488, Chromeo™ 505 and Chromeo™ 494 secondary antibody conjugates have been certified by Leica Microsystems for STimulated Emission Depletion (STED) microscopy, as they exhibited superior staining when compared to other fluorescent antibody conjugates. The ATTO 532 (GSD) and the Rhodamine 6G (GSD) secondary antibody conjugates are recommended by Leica Microsystems for high resolution GSDIM microscopy using the novel SR GSD microscope.
