Photo-stability of HyPer5 dye. Normalized signals from two HyPer5 samples exposed to light source are shown in grey and green lines. The signals from matching Cy5 samples measured over time are shown in red and blue lines. The signals were normalized against control samples kept in the dark for both HyPer5 and Cy5 dyes. Greater than 3-fold difference in photostability was observed between HyPer5 and Cy5 over the tested interval.
