Cyanine 3.5 (Cy3.5) is a fluorescent dye that belongs to the Cyanine family of synthetic polymethine dyes. Cy3.5 is reactive, water-soluble, and has an absorbance maximum of 581 nm and an emission maximum of 596 nm. It is available as a phosphoramidite, and is used to fluorescently label oligonucleotides at either the 5- or 3-end, or internally. Cy3.5 plays a particularly important role in real-time PCR applications, being used as a reporter moiety in TaqMan probes (1), Scorpion primers (2) and Molecular Beacons (3). For such probes, Cy3.5 is most commonly paired with the dark quencher BHQ-2, as the two have excellent spectral overlap.

Cy3 can also be used to label DNA oligos for use as hybridization probes in other applications, such as Fluorescent In-Situ Hybridization (FISH).
