Hi, Sripad,

The Alexa Fluor equivalent of Cy7 is Alexa Fluor 750.  

Currently, Thermo Fisher Scientific (parent company of Molecular Probes) does not offer an AF750 tyramide.  Our Superboost TSA kit (our new TSA version with a poly-HRP) only goes up to AF647 (equivalent to Cy5 in wavelength), so, as mentioned by George, you would either need to conjugate your own (using the AF750 succinimidyl ester, catalog A20011) or have us make a custom for you.  

Contact me offline if you are interested in a custom and I can put you in touch with the appropriate group.

Cheers,

Jason

George,
Thanks for the info. I am aware of the paper that you mentioned. They use a combinatorial strategy to achieve the high level of multiplexing, which is something that we cannot translate easily to other applications.

Yes, spectral imaging is the way to go but it has its own challenges. I have been doing spectral unmixing for a couple of years and part of my goal to go with a Cy7-TSA probe is to move away from spectral unmixing.

Regards,
Sripad
