There is only one supplier of Alexa fluorophores - Molecular Probes part of 
Invitrogen, and you can go to their website to find an Alexa which will 
excite at the wavelength you want to use.  Contact their technical services 
for recommendations on this, they are very helpful.  Molecular Probes 
Handbook is on line, explaining anything you want to know about Alexa 
fluorophores including their array of Alexa related products.  You will not 
be disappointed.
