Cyanine dyes may improve efficiency of existing molecular probes

November 7, 2016

Scientists in Japan, by using a cyanine dye called Cy3, have recently improved the existing molecular probing techniques used to identify the presence of a virus or a tumor receptor in nucleotide sequences from fragments of RNA and DNA. Conventional RNA and DNA “probes” are made using fragments of strands that have nucleotide sequences on […]
