Bleaching of the fluorophore is reduced by:

  1. a very low excitation LED power
  2. the usage of stable fluorophores

Dyes used in our labeling kits show hardly any signal drift of bulk fluorophore in the microfluidic channel over 1 hour continuous excitation. However, you might consider performing specific controls when measuring slow dissociations over many hours. Our application specialists are happy to discuss specific solutions with you.
