BD offers many more antibody-fluor combinations through their OptiBuild reagents. They maintain a separate inventory of antibodies and of fluors which they will conjugate on demand once you placed the order. These reagents are typically available to ship out within 72 hours after your order is received by BD. You order them using a catalog number on their website; no special process is needed. See link below for more information.
