Gen5 version required: 1.0 or higher

Basis for the Assay:

Alexa Fluor® 488 is a member of the Alexa Fluor series of fluorescent dyes manufactured
and sold by Molecular Probes (Invitrogen). These dyes are reported to be brighter, have
better photostability, have a greater pH range and water solubility, as well as have
improved labeling chemistry than many conventional fluorescent compounds. Alexa Fluor
488 would be a replacement for fluorescein in regards to excitation and emission

The protocol calls for a fluorescence measurement using a 485/20 excitation filter and a
528/20 emission filter.

The experiment data file does not contain any data.

Plate Configuration:

Plate configuration does not provide any sample or standard information. It may have to be
updated with more specific information (e.g., standards to generate a calibration curve,


The report is configured to provide the raw fluorescence.
