Fluorescent ion indicators and ionophores

Imaging cell function.

Monitoring intracellular ion change is vital to the understanding of signaling and functional pathways in cellular systems. Ion changes are central to many fundamental processes such as muscle contraction as well as synaptic nerve signal transmission. Homeostatic regulation of these ionic gradients is critical for most cellular functions. Therefore measuring ionic concentrations with both spatial and temporal resolution has become critical in research ranging from drug discovery to neuronal function studies.

We provide a wide range of ion indicators and ionophores to track calcium and other ion concentrations with intense fluorescent signals over a range of different wavelengths.
