Janelia Fluor® 646, SE
Fluorescent dye; supplied as an NHS ester for coupling to primary amine groups. NHS ester can be converted to relevant substrate for use in self-labeling tag systems, e.g. HaloTag® and SNAP-tag®. Suitable for confocal fluorescent imaging, super resolution microscopy (SRM) techniques such as dSTORM (live and fixed cells), STED and PAINT imaging. Can be multiplexed for two colour imaging with Janelia Fluor® 549 SE (Cat. No. 6147). Cell permeable. Excitation maximum = 646 nm; emission maximum = 664 nm. Quantum yield = 0.54, Max. extinction coefficient = 152,000 M-1cm-1 (measured in ethanol plus 0.1% TFA); A280 correction factor is 0.19.
We recommend that stock solutions of this dye are prepared in anhydrous DMF.
To measure the absorbance spectrum of this dye we recommend the following solvent: ethanol or trifluoroethanol plus 0.1% TFA.
We also offer Janelia Fluor® conjugated antibodies and custom conjugation services with our sister company Novus Biologicals.

Application of Janelia Fluor® Dyes in Cardiac Tissue
Super-resolution image (dSTORM) of muscle tissue from the left ventricle of an adult pig heart. JF646 (Cat.No. 6148) was used to label collagen VI, which is present on the cell plasma membrane, and imaged with a 642 nm excitation laser. A clearer structure is achieved in comparison with the widefield image (top right). Scale bar 2 μm.

I used this dye for labeling bacterial proteins in vitro. The labeling method is pretty straight-forward as for any NHS-protein coupling. The dye is highly photostable as determined by single protein tracking on lipid bilayers (image of single proteins attached, scale bar is 5 micron). The only reason I give the product 4 stars instead of 5 is the packaging. The dye is shipped as a solid in a glass bottle with a flexible rubber cap. Most of the dye gets stuck inside and on the surface of this cap; thus not delivering a full value for money. I will highly recommend the manufacturers to use bottles with plastic caps so that the dye can be recovered a 100%
