FerroFarRed - An Ion Indicator for the Specific Detection of Fe2+

Intracellular Fe2+ can react with hydrogen peroxide, thereby producing the hydroxyl radical, a reactive oxygen species (ROS). Excessive ROS causes oxidative stress, resulting in cancer and neurodegenerative diseases.

Göttingen - Lower Saxony - Germany


GöTTINGEN, Germany - Dec. 10, 2018 - PRLog -- FerroFarRed (also known as SiRhoNox-1 or ER-SiRhoNox) is a fluorescent probe,manufactured by Goryo Chemical, Japan, distributed in Europe by MoBiTec GmbH, Germany. FerroFarRed specifically detects labile iron (II) ions (Fe2+) and is known to react with Fe2+ only, separately from other metal ions. Upon reaction with Fe2+ it irreversibly turns into a far-red fluorescent substance. FerroFarRed mainly localizes inside the endoplasmic reticulum (ER). It can also be used with a flow cytometer equipped with a red laser.

Features of FerroFarRed:

Target: Labile iron (Fe2+)
Cell Permeability: Yes
Absmax:: 646 nm
FLmax (nm): 662 nm
Fluorescence: Irreversible
Cytotoxicity: FerroFarRed shows almost no cytotoxicity at concentrations of up to 100 μM (~20 times that of generally used concentrations).

Goryo Chemical is a leading manufacturer of next generation fluorescent probes and research chemicals.

FerroFarRed and all other Goryo Chemical  products can be ordered from MoBiTec: http://www.mobitec.com
