Over the next 1-2 months Tonbo products that include ‘Cy’ as part of their name will begin to change to ‘Cyanine’. This includes APC-Cy7, PE-Cy5, PE-Cy7 and PerCP-Cy5.5 formats, corresponding to Tonbo catalog number prefixes 25, 55, 60 and 65. Changes will first appear on the website, followed by updated Technical Data Sheets. Product labels will change as new lots are bottled. APC-Cy7 products have already been changed to APC-Cyanine7 on the website.
Nothing is changing from a materials or manufacturing perspective – we are simply updating the nomenclature from the trademarked short form ‘Cy’ to the full dye name ‘Cyanine’. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us.
