The FluoProbes series of fluorescent dyes were developed by Interchim to improve performances of standard fluorophores. They are designed for labeling biomolecules, cells, tissues or beads[2] in advanced fluorescent detection techniques.

  • FluoProbes dyes that have comparable excitation and emission spectra to standard fluorophores such as fluoresceins, rhodamines, cyanines Cy2/3/5/5.5/7, are claimed to solve limiting issues observed in some applications such as too high background, insufficient polarity, photobleaching, insufficient brightness, or pH-sensitivity. I.e., FluoProbes488 reduces the backgroung in Flow Cytometry[5] and in slide microscopy allowing sharper and brighter images.[6] FluoProbes 488, 547H and 647H are found more photostable [7] that is taken to good account in applications using long illuminations periods (i.e. scanning such as in confocal microscopy),[8] or for longer shelf-life of reagents (i.e. manufacturing diagnostics).
