eFluor® Nanocrystals for Imaging
Cadmium-Free Nanocrystals for Live Tissue Imaging
The versatility of eFluor Nanocrystals extends to applications beyond antigen detection. eFluor Nanocrystals for imaging have been successfully introduced into live animals to facilitate visualization of the vascular and lymphatic systems, as well as tumors. Due to the inherent photostability of eFluor Nanocrystals, continuous observations are possible over periods of hours to days.
The ideal eFluor Nanocrystal for use in imaging is the eFluor 700 Nanocrystal (eFluor 700NC). eFluor 700NC contains a core particle composed of indium gallium phosphide (InGaP) that alleviates the toxicity and safety issues associated with other nanocrystals that contain cadmium selenide (CdSe) heavy metal cores.
Versatile reagent for live tissue imaging
Reactive eFluor 700NC for Live Cell Labeling
eFluor 700NC is available as a amine-reactive, carboxyl-reactive or non-functionalized nanocrystal which is suitable for labeling cells in culture. The photostability and cadmium-free core enable the tracking of labeled cells following transfer into a host animal.
