Chromeo™ 488 Tools for STED Microscopy
Chromeo 488 dye and fluorescent secondary antibody conjugates
For STED (STimulated Emission Depletion) microscopy using the Leica TCS STED CW microscope, Active Motif’s fluorescent Chromeo™ 488 dye and conjugated secondary antibodies have been certified by Leica Microsystems. The fluorescent properties of Chromeo 488 dye and secondaries meet the specifications required to perform STED microscopy with the TCS CW system, which contains a continuous argon gas laser for excitation.
