Cy5.5 DBCO is a bright and photostable near-IR probe that is spectrally similar to Alexa Fluor® 680, DyLight® 680, and IRDye® 680 dye. The Cy5.5 DBCO is water-soluble, hydrophilic dye often a reagent of choice for assay where minimal non-specific binding and exceptional brightness is required. The fluorescence of Cy5.5 DBCO is pH insensitive from pH 4 to pH 10 and produces minimal autofluorescence of biological specimens in this region of the spectrum. Fluorescence of this long-wavelength Cyanine dye is not visible to the human eye but is readily detected by most imaging systems.

Cy5.5 DBCO reacts with azides via a copper-free “click chemistry” reaction to form a stable triazole and does not require Cu-catalyst or elevated temperatures. In application where the presence of copper is a concern Cy5.5 DBCO is an ideal alternative to copper requiring fluorescent alkynes.
