AZDye™ 568 Cadaverine is a carbonyl reactive building block used to modify carboxylic groups in the presence of activators (e.g. EDC, or DCC) or activated esters (e.g. NHS esters) through a stable amide bond. It also can be employed as a polar tracer and as a reactive dye for labeling proteins via a carboxylic acid moiety.

AZDye™ 568 is a bright, and highly photostable, orange-fluorescent probe optimally excited by the 568 nm laser line on the Ar-Kr mixed-gas laser. This probe is water-soluble and its fluorescence is pH independent over a wide pH range. The brightness and photostability of this dye are best suited to direct imaging of low-abundance targets.
