Bodi Fluor™R6G, NHS ester is the same molecule to Bodipy® R6G, NHS ester (Bodipy® is the trademark of Invitrogen). Bodi Fluor™R6G has the excitation and emission spectra similar to rhodamine 6G. Compared to rhodamine 6G, Bodi Fluor™R6G is a neutral molecule, and its fluorescence is not pH-dependent. Bodi Fluor™R6G gives bright green fluorescence with a sharp emission peak. Bodi Fluor™R6G has been used for developing fluorescent intracellular tracers. Its conjugates are cell-permeable as long as its carriers are cell-permeable.
