Researchers in the NCI Chemical Biology Laboratory developed an improved class of heptamethine cyanines fluorophore dyes useful for imaging applications in the near-IR range (750-850 nm). A new chemical reaction provides easy access to novel molecules with improved properties. Specifically, these dyes display greater resistance to thiol nucleophiles, and are more robust while maintaining excellent optical properties.
