Catalog Protein Labeling - Luminescent Protein LabelingProtein Labeling - Luminescent Protein Labeling
Luminescent ruthenium complexes possess interesting properties compared with conventional dyes. Very long lifetimes of luminescence (up to 1 Ás) and large stokes shifts of more than 100 nm allow for high signal to noise ratios.

Both complexes can be bound to side chains of proteins for use in anisotropy studies and fluorescence lifetime imaging applications. Visible light excitation between 400 and 500 nm will generate a luminescence between 610 and 650 nm depending on the complex used.
