  • Fluorescein Azide (6-FAM-Azide) is a fluorescent dye that allows efficient labeling of biomolecules by click reactions. With identical spectral properties to FITC (Fluorescein-5,6-isothiocyanate), ATTO488, Alexa Fluor 488 or DyLight 488 and alike, it is well suited for most fluorescent detection methods.
