Calcein Blue


Product overview

  • Name
    Calcein Blue
  • Short description
    Fluorescent metal ion indicator
  • Biological description
    Fluorescent metal ion indicator. Exhibits resistance to alkaline hydrolysis and displays similar calcium-binding properties to calcein. It fluoresces in both acidic and basic solutions when excited by the correct wavelength. Enhanced fluorescence is shown when bound to Ca (II), La (II) and Zn (II). Reduced fluorescence is shown when bound to Fe (II), Cu (II), Ni (II), Mn (II) and Co (II).
