Calcium measurements are critical for numerous biological investigations. Fluorescent probes that show spectral responses upon binding Ca2+ have enabled researchers to investigate changes in intracellular free Ca2+ concentrations by using fluorescence microscopy, flow cytometry, fluorescence spectroscopy, and fluorescence microplate readers. Fluo-3 AM and Fluo-4 AM are most commonly used among the visible light-excitable calcium indicators for live-cell calcium imaging. However, Fluo-3 AM and Fluo-4 AM are only moderately fluorescent in live cells upon esterase hydrolysis and require harsh cell loading conditions to maximize their cellular calcium responses. Fluo-8® dyes are developed to improve cell loading and calcium response while maintaining the convenient Fluo-3 and Fluo-4 spectral wavelengths of Ex/Em = ∼490/∼520 nm. Fluo-8® AM can be loaded into cells at room temperature, while Fluo-3 AM and Fluo-4 AM require 37°C for cell loading. In addition, Fluo-8® AM is two times brighter than Fluo-4 AM and four times brighter than Fluo-3 AM. AAT Bioquest offers a set of our outstanding Fluo-8® reagents with different calcium-binding affinities (Fluo-8® Kd = 389 nM; Fluo-8H™ Kd = 232 nM; Fluo-8L™ Kd = 1.86 µM; Fluo-8FF™ Kd = 10 µM). We also offer versatile packing sizes to meet your special needs (e.g., 1 mg, 10x50 µg, 20x50 µg, and HTS packages) with no additional packaging charge.
