Two-photon excitation of a trifluorophore (6-carboxyfluorescein, N,N,N′,N′-tetramethyl-6-carboxyrhodamine and cyanine-5 monofunctional dye) labeled DNA, which has a scaffold of 26 nucleotides, was achieved using focused laser light of a Q-switched Nd-YAG laser (1064 nm). The observed fluorescence signature (emission ratio from the three fluorophores) of the labeled DNA after two-photon excitation is very different from the fluorescence signatures produced by one-photon excitation at different wavelength. The additional fluorescence signatures produced by two-photon excitation of the fluorescent oligonucleotides will facilitate their use as combinatorial fluorescence energy transfer tags for multiplex genetic analysis.
