Dear Arnold

Red670 is, of course, a PE-Cy5 tandem like our Tri-Color or Pharmingen's
CyChrome.  If Sunnyvale Red is a single dye exciting at 488 and emitting at
670, it would be like B-D's PerCP.  It would be great if a good alternative
existed.  We would certainly be interested
Regards
Bob Johnson
