Calcium measurement is critical for numerous biological investigations. Fluorescent probes that show spectral responses upon binding calcium have enabled researchers to investigate changes in intracellular free calcium concentrations by using fluorescence microscopy, flow cytometry, fluorescence spectroscopy and fluorescence microplate readers. Cal-520 has been proven to be the best green fluorescent calcium indicator. Conceivably this amine-reactive Cal-520 NHS ester could be coupled to an IgG or other carrier molecules to prepare a calcium-sensitive bioconjugate for monitoring calcium change spatially for a specific target.
