abberior STAR 580
abberior STAR 580 was developed for STED and confocal microscopy in the orange spectral region. Characteristic features of this dye are exceptional photostability and high fluorescent quantum yield of 90%. abberior STAR 580 can be very effectively excited with excitation wavelength between 550 - 600 nm. For STED microscopy, abberior STAR 580 can be used most efficiently with a STED laser wavelength between 750 - 800 nm. Our abberior STAR 580 can substitute dyes like Cy3, ATTO® 590 or Alexa Fluor® 568. abberior STAR 580 is the ideal partner for abberior STAR RED or abberior STAR 635P to obtain optimal 2 color STED results. Together with our abberior STAR ORANGE you get the ideal pair for FLIM experiments. Best results are obtained with freshly prepared samples.
