Alfa Chemistry: Fluorescent Probes Hold Promises for Multiple Fields
By: Alfa Chemistry
As a consequence of excellent sensitivity and vast selectivity, fluorescent probes gain a competitive edge in terms of their straightforward preparation procedures and have been chosen as the most appropriate tools to detect chemical substances of interest in many research and industrial fields. Meanwhile, due to their optimum photophysical properties, fluorescent probes can also serve as essential research tools in bioimaging or other physiological studies for cellular level optimization.
"The most desirable fluorescent probes are bright, photo-stable, and excitable within the wavelength range of 450–750 nm. These properties realize single-molecule detection and research with extended observation time. Most importantly, they should be commercially available in a bioconjugatable form," said the Marketing Chief of Alfa Chemistry.
Currently, Alfa Chemistry offers the following types of fluorescent probes, highly sensitive and efficient in response.
As metal ions can greatly affect ecological stability, the detection of metal ions becomes a must. Ion probes have been widely used to detect Ca2+, Zn2+, Hg2+, Al3+, Cl-, ClO- and other special ions.
Membrane Potential Probes (https://photochem.alfa-
The membrane potential detection technology has attracted extensive attention. Recently, certain classical fluorescent dyes containing TMRM (tetramethyl rhodamine methyl ester), TMRE (tetramethyl rhodamine ethyl ester), Rhodamine 123 (Rh 123), and JC-1 cationic groups have been developed to synthesize the membrane potential probes. Alfa chemistry provides various membrane potential probes, just to name a few here: DiSC3(5) (CAS 53213-94-8), DiBAC4(5) (CAS 63560-89-4), RH 237 (CAS 83668-91-1), Di-4-ANEPPS (CAS 90134-00-2), DiOC2(3) (CAS 905-96-4), etc.
