Abberior® STAR 580 and STAR RED dyes are hydrophilic fluorescent dyes with remarkable photostability that give optimal performance of dye-conjugates in STED and confocal microscopy.
Jena Bioscience now offers STAR 580- and STAR RED-labeled single nucleotides as well as the corresponding HighYield T7 RNA Labeling Kits for in vitro transcription-based direct labeling of RNA probes.
Linker-optimized abberior® STAR dye-labeled UTPs in combination with an optimized enzyme mix allow efficient preparation of abberior® STAR dye-labeled RNA probes (> 100 nt up to several thousand nt) (Fig. 1, Tab. 1).
