CAL Fluor Red 610 is a fluorescent dye manufactured by Biosearch Technologies. CAL Fluor Red 610 fluoresces in the orange-red region of the visible spectrum. It is used
for the 5'- labeling of fluorogenic probes used in 5' nuclease assays, Molecular Beacons, and other detection assays. This fluorescent dye can only be added to the 5' terminus. BHQ-2 dye will quench the CAL Fluor Red 610 moiety.
The CAL Fluor Red 610 fluorophore is an alternative for Texas Red dye.
