Atto 488 is a fluorescent label with excellent water solubility. Characteristic features of the label are strong absorption, high fluorescence quantum yield, high photostability, and very little triplet formation. Thus Atto 488 is highly suitable for single-molecule detection applications and high-resolution microscopy such as PALM, dSTORM, STED etc. Additionally the dye highly qualifies to be applied in flow cytometry (FACS), fluorescence in-situ hybridization (FISH) and many more. The fluorescence is excited most efficiently in the range 480 - 515 nm. For instance the 488 nm line of the Argon-Ion laser is very suitable for excitation.find more information here
