Product overview

Name Fura-2 AM (Cell permeant)
Biological description

Fura-2 AM (Cell permeant) is a high affinity, cell permeable calcium indicator which is ratiometric and UV light excitable. AM ester derivative of Fura-2.

Fura-2 AM (Cell permeant) can noninvasively be loaded into live cells by incubation and is widely used for ratio-imaging microscopy and measuring intracellular calcium elevations in neurons and other excitable cells.

Excitation 340/380nm, Emission 505nm.

Purity >95%
Customer comments

Reliable product - product worked well for live cell calcium imaging in multiple cell types i.e. primary hippocampal neurons and HEK293 kidney cells. Verified customer, University College Dublin

Reliable - I have tried Fura-2 AM across multiple cell types and in different assays. Works well and is reliable. Verified customer, UEA: University of East Anglia
